My 1995 Kawasaki bayou 300 will not start it has a spark gas to the Carb and a new battery it cranks and cranks but will not start. How do I get it to start someone please help I wanna go riding..

Hi Abbott:
You've gotta be close. Let's double check.
- Pull the plug(s) and make sure they're not fouled and that there is a nice hor blue spark across the electrode.
- Fresh gas in the tank
- flush the carb (drain plug)
- Fuel filter if there is one.
- Clean the air filter.
Put it back together and give it a try. If it runs, great, if not, pull a spark plug and see if it is "wet" with gas. If not, the problem will probably be with gummy bad stuff in the carb. Take it off, and an air hose to try to blow out all the little passages.
Keep smiling, you'll be killing bugs in no time!

Poulan leaf blower won't start

Check compression. 120-140 is good. over 100 it will run. Less than 90 is below service limit. Remove the muffler and look at the cylinder and piston. Do you see lines running up and down? a dull grey color? Those are signs that the motor is burnt up. The cylinder should be shiny, almost chrome, with no marks on the walls.
A severely flooded engine will give a false low compression reading. If no visible damage is found in the cylinder- its shiny with no marks- then reinstall the muffler, remove all fuel from the tank, open the choke, give full throttle and pull start cord several times. Maybe 10 or more times. If it starts keep the throttle open and let it run full speed until it runs clean. Then add good fuel and try to run. If it runs that's great. If it continues to flood itself the diaphragms are stiff and the carb needs rebuilt.

My 1981 Kawasaki is leaking gas out of this little rubber hose on the muffler side of my bike. This little rubber hose looks like it is attatched to the spark plugs or something. This can not be safe. What...

hi,this might help,it sounds like one of your carb floats is stuck,this will allow the carbs to keep filling with fuel and ultimately overflow through that rubber hose,if it is only one then it is a simple fix(hopefully),get a long screwdriver and give each of the carb bowls a good healthy tap (with the handle end)hope fully this wil free it up and the fuel should stop running out,if it doesnt then you may have to pull the carbs out and clean the needle valves and reset the float levels...cheers
