Replaced fuel line and now petrol comes from fuel bowl is there a gasket between fuel bowl and body please?

No, Go online to www.cycleparts and proceed to look up the part for carburator assembly that you need and at that point order the part that you need for your carb. You need to look for a carburator bowl gasket for your particular motorcycle.

Good luck my friend,

My husband just got a suzuki savage and had to take carburator apart there is 2 hoses that he cant find where they go please help!!

If they are small tubes , the one on the side is probably just a float bowl vent and goes to the front of the rear wheel. The one on the bottom of the carburetor bowl is the drain hose for the bowl and goes to the front of the rear wheel. The vent and drain line just hang in front of the rear wheel and do not connect to anything.
It is possible that one of the lines is a vacuum line and does actually have to plug into a vacuum fuel petcock. If this is the case the fuel will not flow to the carburetor unless the line is hooked up. Hope this helps.

Gas leake from Air vent hose ( rear carburator) Suzuki Marauder VZ800 2002

If you mean that fuel runs out of one of the vent lines, note that one of those lines is for overflow from the carb bowl. If this is what is happening, you might have corrosion or dirt making your float needle stick, and overflow fuel to that carb. It needs to be cleaned out by removing the bowl, float and float needle.

VTX 1300R 07 ran out of gas and won't start, put fuel in it.

Does your bike have a petcock?

If so you have to prime the fuel bowls with gas by opening the pet **** for a minute until the fuel bowls are full of fuel THEN you set your choke if you have a manual choke THEN start the bike.

Broken fuel line, can't figure out where to attach fuel line coming out of the fuel filter

Typically it goes tank outlet to fuel filter to carb. Which end is confusing you? If its a 2cyl engine, with 2 carbs, then it may go to a split to feed gas to both carbs, but that's not likely on a 110cc.

Engine gets off sudeenly while riding

There seems to be fuel stravation problem to the carburator....
Remove the carburator and thn remove the float bowl and clean the float pin and its passage...there could be some kind of dirt in the pathway and thus the obstruction of the fuel flow into the float chamber.
If your bike doesn't have an 'in-line' filter ....install one! this will help catch the dirt before it finds its way into the float chamber.

Hope this helps!

My fuel lines were removed. i need help reconnecting

There is only one fuel line that goes from the tank to the carburator. The rest (Smaller lines) are vent lines and a bowl drain tube, that just hang toward the ground.

Need connection pictures from the carburators to the tank complete service manual download but to make it easier for you.... short line between carbs 1 and 2 goes to the rear facing nipple on petcock. line between carbs 3 and 4 goes to the front facing nipple on the petcock and the vacuum line on the side of carb 4 goes to the nipple on the petcock that is facing away from the fuel knob. the 2 other lines on the carbs are just float bowl overflows that get criss crossed across the carbs and draped down the sides they are only there to keep the gas from flooding your motor if you dump your bike. hope this helps

Dirty carburator

dear rockyacers your carb does not have a internal filter the filter would be a in line filter installed in your fuel line. the other filter is a screen in the fuel tank and a sediment bowl located at the petcock. to service tank sreen you must remove petcock from tank simply unsrew petcock remove from tank and clean with comp air and carb cleaner. hope this helpful jim

My 2001 Yamaha YZ 250F won't idle without choke. Bogs out with choke off. Idles just fine with choke on. What could be the problem and could i fix it in my garage?

You will have to clean the carburator there seems to be dirt in it thus obstructing the free flow of gas through the jets.

Hope you have some idea about carburators.

Please visit this site search for carburator will get the basic idea to it.
There you will also find 'Other motocycles" click in there and you maight gt a solution to your bike.
