Question about 1995 Honda VFR 400 R NC30
I added a bit of bad fuel to the tank and still the bike ran fine that day. The next day i went to start it up and it wouldn't start. I emptied out the gas, checked the fuel and air filters, and even added fuel treatment with a bit of new clean fuel and the bike still won't turn over. My spark plugs should be good since they were recently replaced. Any suggestions before i take it to a shop?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, try to drain the carbs themselves. Each carb has a drain screw at the bottom specifically for this purpose. Just turning these drain screws a couple of turns counter-clockwise would allow the fuel inside the bowl to drain out through a hose. Normally, I do it with the tank's fuel valve open (PRI) so as to enable the gas to flow freely, the fresh gas to wash the inside of the bowl and prevent the float from sticking in the open position. In some instances that the the tank's fuel valve open is closed when doing this, the carb has a bad habit of overflowing. Of course care and safety should be in mind as raw fuel would tend to be draining out.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
