Question about 1996 kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Classic
Won't start. now shoots gas out small hole in air cleaner compartment, worked fine two days ago.
The Carburetor is flooding. The only thing that
will cause a flood problem is the float needle is not seating properly in the
needle seat. The Carburetor will need to be removed to replace the Needle and Float
assembly. After instillation the float level will need to be checked, and
adjusted if required. This is a little tricky, and would be quite lengthy to explain
hear. Short version is, the needle is a two part piece, having a spring loaded
piston located in the needle, the neoprene needle tip will need to be seated in
the seat, the spring loaded piston in the needle will need to remain uncompressed, in other words not pushed
into the needle what so ever. With the float tang just touching the top of the
uncompressed needle piston. To do this hold the carburetor housing in a
position to accomplish the the above configuration. Measure from the carburetor
housing gasket surface to the highest point of the float drum. The measurement specifications
are (14.5 to 18.5 mm) or (0.57" to 0.72" in). Make sure the float pin rotates

You should have the injectors cleaned, As fuel gets old, the most burnable part of it evaporates This leaves a very liquid gunk behind, the gunk contains some very big bits of rubbish, (compared to clean fuel or injectors) it sounds as though you have blocked injectors. If you give them a good clean and fill the tank with new fuel you should fix the problem.
