SOURCE: Vacuum line not connected correctly

ok fuel fill lines are the 2 lines between carbs 1 n 2 and 3 n 4 toward the rear of the bike the 2 hoses coming out just in front of them are float bowl overflows that just get criss crossed over the carbs and ran thru the little holders on the frame. the only vacuum line is coming out of the side of carb 4, this line goes to the nipple on the petcock facing away from the knob. as for the fill lines the 1 between 1 n 2 goes to the nipple facing the rear of the bike and 3 n 4 goes to the 1 facing the front of the bike. hope this helps here is a link for a free service manual download. try using it is a lot more helpful than this site for katana issues.

SOURCE: Fuel leaking into crankcase on 2001 Honda CBR 600

it's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

SOURCE: how and what order do i sync my katana carbs

To sync your carbs there are various suppliers for the sync sticks. Norgan Carbtune from the UK or Motion Pro are two that come to mind. Both can supply carb syncro sticks. I would suggest getting a manual or checking your library for the specific syncroed level.

Katana 600 oil lines

Hi, John it's a vent line for the fuel tank that is supposed to be run down pass the bottom of the frame usually loosely secured with a tie wrap lead acid batteries and carburetors have a similar tubes and tie wrap these lines do not attach to anything at the bottom they should be free from kinks and pinches so they can breathe easily.

How to hook up vacuum lines on a 1988 suzuki katana 600

You must hook them on each niple has each carburator right before it's cylinder head's collar that is plugged on. One of them has the vacuum hose that goes to your fuel switch, pull it out and put the switch to PRI position or feed the carburators externaly. The other nipples are plugged with blind plugs which you remove to plug the vacuum hoses and then replace them back on.

Im putting back on a gas tank on a 94 suzuki katana 600 and i forgot what these two long hoses are for

they're vent tubes to vent off excess gasses and trail down between the air box and the battery and stick out the bottom of the frame.

Hope this helps

Took tank off and didn't mark hose know don't know they go

all main fuel lines should route to the fuel filter first. then to a "fuel pump" system, then up into the fuel rail or t-fitting. if you see a smaller extra hose coming off the tank that is just a purge vent tube overflow line. That should drain into another funnel like collecting device that will route to it so as to not drop onto the hot running engine. Follow the main line from the fuel selector on/off/res... there better only be one line... or that means you"ll have two fuel filter/ pump systems, i wouldn't want straight unfiltered fuel going directly into my carbs. (Plus that would mean your pump and main filter are in the tank) this could be a possibility!! Let me know if im wrong, call the dealer and ask, but this is 1993 technology not 2003 it should be very basic.

Fuel setting on GSX 600 R

first thing to check is there will be a thinner fuel line looking hos that comes from the tap to that is the vacuum pipe make sure its not split and that its connected to the inlet manifold because thats what creates the vacuum for the tap to release the fuel the reason it comes out on prime is the prime setting just opens the tap up with out vacuum hope this helps

Hoes parrtern for a 1995 suzuki katana gas tank.

there should be a vacuum hose coming from carb 4 that goes to the port on the rear of the petcock. as for the other 2 they are feed lines the 1 facing the rear of the bike goes to a hose between carb 1 and 2 and the 1 facing the front of the bike goes on the hose between carbs 3 and 4. the 2 remaining hoses on the carbs get criss crossed across the carbs and draped down thru the holders on the frame they are just overflow tubes incase you dump your bike. the other hose on the tank is a vent tube. hope this is helpful.

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.
