Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star Custom
I wrecked the bike years ago.It has been sitting for 4 years, I tried to start it and it started to leak gas after i turned the gas on. what do i do?
HELLO THIS IS AN EASY ONE.
****CAUTION**** IF IT IS FLODDING GAS OUT OF IF.THE GAS CAN ALSO BE GOING INTO YOUR AIR BOX.IF THE BIKE BACK FIRES IT WILL IGNIGHT THE OLD FUEL THAT HAS CLOECTED IN THE AIR BOX AND YOU COULD LOSE YOUR BIKE BE CAREFULL AND KEEP CHECK ON THE AIR BOX AND FILTER DURING THE INTIRE PROCCES
WELL TO ANSWER .YOUR CARBS ARE VARNISHED UP.THIS IS CAUSED FROM THE BIKE SETTING FOR SO LONG.THE LEAKING GAS IS FROM THE FLOATS NOT BEING ABLE TO FLOAT BECAUSE OF THE VARNISHING.AND OF COURSE THE NEDDLE VAVLE IS STUCK(THAT IS WHAT SHUTS THE FUEL OF INSIDE THE CARBS)
YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE THEM APART AND CLEN THEM VERY GOOD,AND THIS IS GOING TO BE QUITE A JOB ON THIS BIKE.
IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO TAKE IT TO SHOP IT WOULD BE EASYER FOR YOU.;HOWEVER A GOOD GUESS AT THE PRICE TO DO THIS ,I WOULD SAY AT THE DEALER YOU MAY BE LOOKING AT 300.00 DOLLARS ARE MORE DEPENDING ON THE DAMAGE.
OH I ALMOST FORGOT.YOU WILL HAVE TO CLEAN THE TANK OUT OF THE OLD FUEL AND MAYBE THE VARNISHING.AND I DONT KNOW IF THIS BIKE HAS A FUEL PUMP ARE IF IT GRAVITY FEED .YOU MAY HAVE TO CLEAN OUT THE PUMP IF IT HAS ONE AS I SAID I DONT KNOW ON THIS BIKE.AND THE PETCOCK VALVE(FUEL ON AND OF VAVLE) MAY ALSO NEED TO BE LOOKED AT
HOPE THIS HELP AND AGAIN REMEBER ABOUT THE AIR BOX I HAVE SEEN SOME NICE BIKES BURT FROM THIS.
