If its got floats in carbs, a needle and seat could be stuck open, or if somebody's been monkeying with it the float adjustment could be set too high allowing too much fuel in the float bowl and then it goes out the overflow tube.

Yamaha xj600 84 mod has spark and fuel but will only turn over and will not fire


Remove the spark plug and flush out the excessive OVERFLOW OF FUEL as the engine failed to start. Unless this is flushed out the overflow of fuel with the dampness will not fire the cylinder.
Also check on the spark intensity with the plug as it must be good.
If not check the HT coils and the HT wires, check the incicent voltage on the HT coils for the coil trigger which must be fluctuating 12 volts.
This must start the engine if the timing is correct.

2004 tomas moped sitting for a year started every 3 mo. rode it after ride notice gas leaking now it would start.


Sounds like fuel is overflowing from the carb , hence the fuel will also overflow internaly into the engine causing it to overfuel flooding the engine and soaking the plug in petrol, clean the plug, with the fuel turned off open the throttle wide while you attempt to start the engine, the extra air from the open throttle should be all it takes

When i start the bike cold or hot i have black smoke from the exhaust pipes..choke on or off and cant get bike to idle..i turn off the petcock and after a few seconds the idle starts to come back to...


Black smoke indicates that your mixture is way too rich. Now, you didn't say what carb you're running, stock or aftermarket. But, what it sounds like to me is the needle and seat in the carb is leaking fuel and overfilling the float bowl. When you're running down the road, you'll using enough fuel so that the float bowl does not overfill. When idling, you don't use as much fuel, the bowl overfills, and fuel flows into the carb creating a very rich mixture. Is you overflow hose that connects to the bottom of the float bowl connected, clear and open? If so, turn the petcock on without the engine running. If the overflow is clear and the needle valve is leaking, you should see fuel start to flow out of the overflow hose. This is very important that it do this. If the overflow hose is blocked and you forget to turn your petcock off, you could wind up with a couple of gallons of fuel in your engine. It will leak out of the float bowl, into the carb past the intake valves, past the rings and into the engine. I've also seen it get into the primary drive case as well. I'd put a new needle in the carb and check the float setting according to the book. it's sets with the carb on an angle if the carb is the original Keihin CV.

Good Luck

Fuel leaking out of overflow float is not stuck, no petrol is getting to the engine???


If the float is not stuck the needle and seat are not sealing, it could be a worn needle/seat or dirt jamming the needle. With fuel running out of the overflow, your engine should be flooding if anything (and this will also prevent it from starting) check to see if the spark plug is very wet after you have tried to start it several times.

There is petrol leaking from the overflow on my zxr 400, should this overflow be connected to anything else via tube ....?


No, the overflow tube should dump the fuel out the bottom of the bike.

Possible solutions (?): 1: Don't over fill the tank. 2: Check for corrosion in the tank overflow tube.

Fuel dumping


Sounds like a vacum issue with the tank, try starting the bike with the filler open, when you shut the bike off of no more fuel leaking then you may have a vacum issue with the tank. I have seen cases where the vent tube in the tank is clooged and it wont allow the fuel to return to the tank properly.

The are the float spindle som not close , it can happening when dirt are coming in the carburettor float chamber. This are under the caburettor.
You must clean they so the float spindle can close. If the engine get full of fuel , it could bee fire in the engine.
