SOURCE: Gas leaking heavily from overflow tubes.

Sounds like the float is sticking open on the carb and its draining. You can try taking the carb off and opening the bottom up and checking for anything that may be creating resistance.

SOURCE: 93 gsxr wont start and occasionally dies

you could possibly have a bad fuel petcock they sometimes work there way out and cause fuel cut off to half the carburetors. The vent tube on tob of the tank can also become blocked. You can check it buy sucking on the tube and making sure you can **** air out of it. You may or may not have inline filters under the tank. If it's a 93 there is no fuel pump.

SOURCE: Air box and crank case fuel flooding problem

Well there only one way the fuel can get into the crankcase and that's from the fuel tank. The petcock must be draining and the float needles are not stopping the fuel flow. Do you have a prime position on the petcock? If so do not run the bike in the position. Try topping the tank off with gas and letting it sit for a while and see is the gas has gone down and then check the crankcase and see if there's fuel in it again. i still say its got to be your petcock.

SOURCE: When I start up the bike petrol pours out from a

The petrol is coming from the carburettor overflow because it is flooding. This is almost certainly because the float in the carb is stuck down, holding the needle valve that lets the petrol into the carb permanently open. Classic result of the bike being left standing and unused for a while (But by no means the only cause. Dirt in the fuel is also another classic cause of this problem). To fix:

1) Remove the carb from the bike, flip it upside down 2) Unscrew the (usually 4) screws holding the float chamber in place.
3) Clean everything out with clean petrol and, if you have access to one, a high pressure air hose.
4) Reassemble and refit.
5) Pray

SOURCE: 87 kawasaki not providing 100% of its power!!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, your description of " and on it shows me it has the power it should..." is significant as it indicates that it would not be a mechanical / engine problem.

Offhand, almost always, erratic performance and/or intermittent power could be: 1) electrical (least likely), 2) air/fuel mix (likely) and/or 3) carb (most likely).

Interesting though if as you posted, the bike has "". If it were so, then a possibility to consider is that the carbs need synchronization.

Preliminary checks:

  • at cold start, determine which cylinders heat up faster / slower using water spray;
  • determine the colors of the burns / tips of the sparkplugs at what cylinder;
  • loosen the drain screws of each carb and collect the fuel from the drain hose. Compare the quantity and quality amongst all 4 bowls.

Incidentally, is everything stock or aftermarket items installed such as free/open breathers air filters and/or exhaust system?

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Engine won't stay running. Seams to turn over fine but acts as if it is not getting fuel.

Have you checked the sediment bowl for water? Possibly there is some bad gas if you have let the mower sit for months with gas in the tank. If you empty the gas tank and start fresh. Also add about a tablespoon of acetone to a full tank . If you're having a fuel issue this will fix it. If not then the carb needs to be rebuilt.

Honda cbr 400rr run sout of fuel in fuel lien but have petrol in the tank.its not set on reserve. tank was half full when it happened. happpenrd a few times now. When bike stops in ride and check filt

Sounds like you have trash in your tank or line. I've seen this happen with atv's even though you believe all your fuel going in is clean, stuff can still get in unknowingly to you. I've seen a floating honey bee in a cars fuel tank cause all kinds of problems like that. Owner spent countless hours and dollars replacing sensors, solenoids, and come to find out the dead bee would stay afloat normally, but when the fuel pump pulled it into the screen, the fuel flow would either be minimal or totally stop it all together. Pull that fuel line off and turn your petcock valve on and off to see if fuel comes out good or partially. Your bike may be getting fuel fine during low speed and idle, but upon demand when more fuel is needed to accelerate, the flow is restricted somewhere and it starves the carbs. Hope this helps.

Chances are there is a water build up in the carb float bowls. The water comes from condensation in the gas tank. Try draining the carbs. Another possibility is carburetor main jets partially plugged up. You must clean the carbs if plugged jets are found to be the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_152.gif

I recently bought a 2004 klx 400 sr dual sport. the bike starts up with no problems. After i ride it for a few minute the bike starts to act like it is running out of gas then stalls. it will turn...

Your running out of gas.
the fuel filter needs replaced.
your fuel filter is clogged and isn't letting a full flow of gasoline through.
change your fuel filter.

Also check to make sure your gas tank vent isn't clogged.
a clogged gas tank vent with pull a vacuum and try to **** your tank in, but it can't, so your fuel flow stops if it can't breathe.

That should take care of your problem.
have a great weekend

Should I start or take my motorcycle for a ride during the winter

yes you should at least start it once a week. bikes do not take sitting well even in a garage. give it about 5 min run time. also add a fuel stabilizer to a fresh tank of gas.

Bike started to sputter and lose power fuel

This sounds like water in the gas. Condensation in the gas tank makes it's way into the float bowl and after enough accumulates the bike dies because water just doesn't burn like gas. Drain the carbs and then let them fill up again. The good thing is that the cost to eliminate this as a problem is zero.

Breaking Down

The problem may be a pinched fuel or vacuum hose, or a weak/collapsed vacuum hose. The problem may be varnished fuel/carburetors. It may be an electrical problem: loose connector or defective conductor. I cannot help you other than this without having the Duc and performing a few tests. The Monsters are fun to ride.
