Hi ...... Sounds like float levels are set too high or debris in float chamber. Switch petrol off from/at tank and drain fuel from float bowls, if you use the cap off a paint can etc you can catch it and look at it to see if any water or debris present. Retighten drain screws, switch petrol back on and see if it still overflows.

Why is fuel in vent tubes on my carbs


Hi, Rick and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

I have a 2000 yamaha R1 and when i stared it up it leak gas i don't know much about bike what can i do


First you can look see if any fuel lines have become perrished or simply fallen off, lift up the tank and start up the bike the fuel tap is located at the rear of the tank and can be turned to off position. Try locate where the fuel is leaking, if it is coming fro. The carb breather tubes, or the overflow at the bottom of the carb float bowls if you are not up to scratch with the job you may want to employ someone to remove the carbs for you for cleaning-servicing

Hi I just bought a 1987xj900 without the fuel tank connected,it has 3 pipes facing up coming from the back of the carbs and 3 smaller pipes facing down,I presume the down pipes are for air and vapour but...


from memory
a fuel line( runs to a fitting on carbs which feeds all carbs with a common tube)
a vacumn line to opperate the fuel tap(slightly larger diameter comes off the manifold)
a tank breather line

2002 suzuki intruder gas is running out the breather tube coming from the carb.


hi,it sounds like you have a stuck float valve,give the carb bowl a good healthy tap with the handle of a screwdriver,it may loosen it up and problem solved,however if it doesnt then you will have to remove the carb and free the float bowl up,.floats sticking can be caused by fuel left in the bowls over a long period(winter),when the fuel evaporates it leaves behind a white gummy looking compound that can create all sorts of havoc in a carb...cheers

Fuel leaking from carb vent tube on newly cleaned carburetor


that would be either the float set to high or the needle and seat is missing an o-ring while you had it apart. Should look at getting a carb kit there only approx. 23 bucks and it would save you a lot of grief in the long run.

it's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

Fuel leak underneath bike


Most likely comes from the carburetor's overflow tube.Start looking in there to rule out the possibility of overflowing.If it is so you need carbs cleaning and adjusting.

Carbs problem


Remove the fuel line from the carb. Turn the gas on > got flow? If not then clean the fuel line and petcock filter if it has one. Install an in-line fuel filter or replace the present one. Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Use compressed air to assist in cleaning. Is the float needle stuck closed? Be certain the vent tube and vent port are clear.

Please rate this solution. Thanks d_vickers2!

Oil blowing out of trans breather tube


hi 81 yamaha i am concerned about the fuel smell coming out with the oil. could be the carbs flooding filling your crankcase with fuel? if not it sounds like you have blow by which would cause your crank case to be slightly pressured. this is caused by worn piston rings. do not plug your crank vent. if you leave your vent open install small filter to stop dirt from entering jim

Fuel leak


Wait... fuel is pouring out of the crankcase breather? Are you sure it's not the carb overflow tube? The crankcase breather should be going back into your airbox or through some kind of filter. If gas is coming out of there DO NOT START YOUR BIKE. It means that gas has gone from the tank through the carbs into the cylinder and is now in your oil. Thinned out oil is the devil for bikes. Sounds like you'll need to clean the carbs and set the float bowl height and maybe rebuild the petcock. Check to see if any fuel is coming out when the petcock is turned off. If it only has on pri and reserve then check for gas in the vaccum tube.,,
