Question about 1989 kawasaki ZX 10
Rebuilt carbs. Replaced all o-rings and gaskets. When testing with a fuel "iv" bottle (No gas tank), the fuel gushed through and poured out of the airbox side on all carbs. I thought that's easy, I'll replace the valve pins. Now that they are replaced, it flows even worse. I have adjusted the float height to 13mm. While testing, I have not hooked up anything to the carbs. I am running it with only the bare carbs with the vacuum ports covered, no air box. I'm at my wits end to why the fuel is flowing so freely. The bike will run, but very rich. Smoke pouring out of the exhaust. Do I need to hook up all the vacuum lines for it to stop fuel flow and run correctly? What's going on?
