After taking off the air breather from my honda shadow vt600 when i pulled the trottle i saw petrol pouring out from a carburetor could the needle be stuck in that carburettor


If the petrol squirts only while you are actively moving the throttle then that is normal. If you are seeing a consistent drip or flow, that might mean that the carb needs to be rebuilt. A diaphragm or seal might be compromised.

Why is gas pouring from the vent line when I go to start it


You don't say what kind of bike or give any other details so I will go with the obvious stuff first, I am guessing you might not ride it often or let it sit up for awhile. Gas pouring from the vent indicates that a float valve is stuck or the needle valve or seat seal has dried up and has fuel being forced around them as the fuel pump pressurizes the carbs. It is dangerous to run the engine with overflow as you could have a fire so your remedy will require you to pull the carbs to fix the problem.

Carburator leaks gas when cycle is started or running from what looks like vent hose?


Sounds to me like your float valve is obstructed by some debris. This is causing it to stay open and leak fuel. Better it leaks to your vent hose than it leaks in your engine and contaminates your oil.

You need a proper carb cleaning. Not some run in the gas tank sh*t. If the tank wasn't full when parked, chances are there is rust in the fuel system to get this out you need to disassemble the carburetor and thoroughly clean it.

Try not to ride the bike til you do this. It's a fire hazard.

Not getting fuel to engine but runs if fuel is pour into cylinders


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. No fuel in gas tank.
2. Fuel valve not switched to on or reserve.
3. Fuel cap not venting properly.
4. Fuel filter clogged.
5. Vacuum line broken, cracked or not connected to petcock or intake manifold.
6. Fuel valve diaphram faulty.
7. Fuel line to carburator blocked or kinked.
8. Float valve needle stuck to seat.
Good luck.

My gas tank collapses in the center when riding. It will even collapse if it's even touched just slightly. I did notice that my fuel level is low when it does it. why is it collapsing? This is a V Star...


Most likely your fuel tank vent is plugged....so as you consume fuel a vacuum is developing in the tank....the lower the tank level gets the worse the vacuum.
If you tried opening the gas cap you likely would hear a whoosh of air rush into to the tank.
If you inspect the filler neck you should see a hole on the inside of the neck that is attached to a hose.....ensure the hole is clear and trace the hose checking for any pinches in it....further down you will find a "rollover valve" on the vent hose.....its designed to allow normal venting, but if the bike tips over, its designed to seal off the vent to prevent gasoline spillage, fire etc. Sometimes the rollover valve sticks and needs to be tapped and flushed and blown through to verifiy its clear.....make sure if you remove it you install it the same way....its designed to mount one way
If you continue riding the bike open the cap often as the vacuum can collapse the tank permanently, and tanks aren't cheap!

1998 valkyrie acts like it runs out of gas , open gas cap runs fine already cleaned out tank


There might be a breather hole in the tank's cap. See if it's blocked. If the tank is completely airtight, at a given time, the pressure inside the tank will be lower than the atmospheric pressure (due to the lowering of the volume of gasoline inside) and then, gasoline stops flowing into the carburettor.
