SOURCE: Float height setting

Back firing is normally an electrical problem. The carb is sometimes adjustable but needless to say, it doesn't go out of allignment on its own, so bear that in mind when trying to eliminate the carb. If it is choking when ticking over, check the idle jet setting.
Good luck.

Kawasaki kr 150 2stroke has fuel in crankcase and also coming out the exhaust

Re-set float height, or replaced float valve as it seems that fuel is seeping in when the engine is off, this needs to be sorted out asap as it can lead to premature engine failure as it will wash the oil out of the incoming charge when the engine is running.

Petrol leaking from air cleaner

That sounds like the float chamber fuel height is incorrect and spilling over. Could be caused by a worn float valve or a punchered float etc.

My 1997 Kawasaki Prarie 400 4x4 has a drain hose comming from the bottom of the carburator, when I shut off the machine all of the gas sifens out of the gas tank through that hose, any ideas?

As fuel level rises in your carb, the floats press upwards on a little brass valve that has a tiny rubber tip. This seats into a perfectly matching valve seat that stops incoming flow from tank to carb when fuel height is correct. trash in the seat, improper fuel float height setting or a damaged tip will cause the fuel to over fill the bowl and drain all over your garage floor. My advice before making any height adjustments is to thoroughly clean your carb with compressed air. If it has a hole that you can put air in, do it. Include the fuel inlet port in this. blow out venturi and clean the inside of your intake and filter housing. With the bowl removed, blow air into the fuel inlet with your mouth while slowly pushing up on the floats. a little after the floats reach horizontal, you should notice that you can no longer blow air in. If you still can even with the floats pushed all the way up, your valve tip is damaged. Remove float and inspect valve seat (inside the hole) and valve tip.

Fuel leaking from air box after shutting down

Thats the float valve seals not shutting off, did you clean them & set the float heights?
The overflows from the carb bottoms must also be blocked for the fuel to fill up the carbs which then leaks into the air filter
Check also that the fuel tap turns off when bike is not running

My Kawasaki zx750 1994 starts when she feels like it!

Your carb is still malfunctioning at the float valve and is flooding your engine.

With the carb off, remove the bowl and then the float. Inspect the tip of the float needle for a defined ring from wear and the float needle seat for burrs or defects. If you find any of this, replace the deffective part.

If not, it may just still be a little dirty. Use a q-tip soaked in carb cleaner to clean the float needle seat. This seat and the float needle have to be perfect to work.

Next make sure the float doesn't have any gas inside it. If it does, it's leaking and causing your problem.

If not, your float height may be a little off. If the float is all plastic, you can't adjust it and it shouldn't be the culprit. If it has a metal tab, this cam be flexed a little to adjust the float height, much like the float in the back of a toilet. Try barely tweaking the metal tab in the direction of the float needle and seat. This will lower the fuel level inside the carb. Only do float mods as a last resort.

Kawasaki EL250 carburettor

Turn off the gas and remove the float bowl. Remove the fuel line. Remove the float pin and float with needle valve. Do not bend the tang that the float needle sits on. Spray carb cleaner into the seat where the needle valve came from to clear out any trash in the valve casing. Spray the float bowl and interior of the carb. Remount the needle and float back in place and put the float bowl back on. Install an in-line fuel filter. The diagram below shows a 1994 carb Yours will be the same or close to it.
