You're being pretty vague, but i'll try. The hose you're probably talking about is an overflow hose off the air filter box. It's supposed to be there. I would bet that you didn't seal the airbox properly and its running too lean. check ur rubbers.

Bike began running rough so I changed the oil, cleaned the K&N air filter and now the 2003 FatBoy Fuel Injected, dies after about 20 seconds of idling and is gurgling and spitting massive amounts of...


"Oh, and now I can\'t even read the oil level on my dipstick due to the fact it is significantly LOW" This is not a good sign. Now, my expertise is NOT on the Twin Cam bikes but I do try to help when I can. In your case, if your engine were an earleir Evolution or Shovelhead engine, I'd say that you had sheared a scavenge gear drive key in the oil pump. Now, I do not know a thing about the oil pump in a Twin Cam as I've never worked on one. It sounds like your oil pump is not scavenging (sucking) the oil out of the engine and pumping it back to the oil tank. Once the pump pumps the oil into the engine, it stays there. Thats why you're seen the "massive amounts of oil spitting out of the little hoses behind the air cleaner". Take your bike to a dealer or qualified shop as soon as possible and I'd refrain from running it. An engine full of oil would also expain why the engine does not want to run as well.

Good Luck
Steve

Our Moto Guzi Nevada is surging all the time and has been back to a dealer several times and they cant find out what it wrong with it. · Inspect for running rough etc + put on axone scan tool + test...


I am not a Moto Guzi mechanic but in the world of Japanese bikes the problem would be trash in the carb partially blocking the main jet and / or internal fuel circuits. Tighten all fittings, carb to manifold as air leaks could be contributing to the problem. If your bike has fuel injection, have the fuel pump checked. Be sure the gas tank venting is not plugged whether carb or injection. Check and clean the filter screens on the pickup tubes inside the gas tank. Be certain the exhaust pipes are clear of obstructions. An internal collapse inside an exhaust pipe can restrict air flow. The bike can not run properly if it can't get rid of burned gasses. Remove the exhaust pipes briefly to eliminate the exhaust system as a problem. I guess I should mention the obvious, how clean is the air filter? Bikes gotta breathe in and out too. If these ideas don't help, just re-post the problem and perhaps someone else has an idea. Best wishes.

I have a 1999 honda valkyrie interstate. it is idling and throttling rough. with the choke engaged at startup it will only idle at about 1100 rpm. when i throttle up it it just doesnt feel like it should....


I would change the plugs and the air filter. Also I would put a full can of Techron or Seafoam in the gas tank and ride it to see if it clears up. If these bikes sit very long the slow jets in the carbs can partially or fully clog resulting in rough running. If the bike sits for long periods over 2 months I would also use a fuel stabilizer such as Seafoam or Stabil. Make sure when adding a fuel stabilizer that the bike runs long enough to get the additive in the carbs.

My er5 runs rough when i ease off on throttle and go back on bike shakes and picks up speed i have cleaned carbs changed plugs and oil+filter


Hi there Dave
I would check Carby setting. Like float levels, Mixture screw setting. These can make the bike run
roughily. Also the spark plugs settings, eg not right gap or heat range or ever reach. One other thing
is vacuum leak eg from a vacuum hose ( this usely makes the bike run rough all the time) Simple way
to test this is use a can of WD 40 & spray over the vacuum hoses & if it stops the problem for a short
time you need to replace the hose or fix the leak. I hope this helps your problem, if not please put up
some more info on what you have done to help you There is many little things that can course is
problem.

Carburator problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand would suggest a rebuilt/clean of the carbs. A temporary workaround would be to switch off the fuel petcock, remove the fuel hose, partially drain the carbs and spray into the fuel hose (going into the carbs) injector/carb cleaner. Reinstall fuel hose, turn on fuel. Remove the air filter and start the bike. After warmup, rev while spraying injector/carb cleaner into the opening where the air filter should be. Get a hard paper/board (such as a folder) cut to a size bigger than the air filter but would fit inside the opening of the airbox. Rev/pump the bike slowly building the RPM at about 4~5K suddenly cover the opening (with the board) to fully choke the carbs while maintaining throttle. Before the engine dies, remove the cover. Spray again while revving. Repeat choking/spraying several times. The idea is for the vaccum to draw the clog/blockages.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

VR plugs


If the old spark plugs are real clean you can use them otherwise put in new ones. Put all the plugs back in the engine and connect up all the plug caps to the plugs. Check the air cleaner and air box. Make sure mice or bugs haven't gotten in there and built a nest plugging up everything. Look at the air cleaner. If it's a paper type blow it off and use it until we are sure the bike will run and the gears work. Then get a new one. Paper tends to plug up, as it ages. If it's a foam one, clean it in solvent. As you clean it, rub the foam somewhat roughly. Not too roughly, just a little roughly. If the foam starts to come apart in your hands you will need to get a new air cleaner. A lot of bikes must have that air cleaner in the system. If you leave it out, the engine may run too lean. This, of course, makes you think there is something wrong with the carb. I had an old Suzuki GS750 come in once. If you just took the air cleaner cover off, it would refuse to idle. Put it back on and it idled perfect. The owner put over 60,000 miles on that bike. Ran great, but it had to have that air cleaner on. I've seen a number of different makes and models do the same thing. Sometimes, even a crack in the air box can make them run funny. I've also seen a lot of bikes where having the air cleaner on or off made no difference in their running. If your not sure, leave the air cleaner in place while you work on the engine. ,,,
