I would have say the float in your carb is stuck. Take the bowl off the bottom and see if your float needle is sticking if not check your fuel line's .

SOURCE: vstar leaking gas when i try to start it

HELLO THIS IS AN EASY ONE.

FIRST
****CAUTION**** IF IT IS FLODDING GAS OUT OF IF.THE GAS CAN ALSO BE GOING INTO YOUR AIR BOX.IF THE BIKE BACK FIRES IT WILL IGNIGHT THE OLD FUEL THAT HAS CLOECTED IN THE AIR BOX AND YOU COULD LOSE YOUR BIKE BE CAREFULL AND KEEP CHECK ON THE AIR BOX AND FILTER DURING THE INTIRE PROCCES

WELL TO ANSWER .YOUR CARBS ARE VARNISHED UP.THIS IS CAUSED FROM THE BIKE SETTING FOR SO LONG.THE LEAKING GAS IS FROM THE FLOATS NOT BEING ABLE TO FLOAT BECAUSE OF THE VARNISHING.AND OF COURSE THE NEDDLE VAVLE IS STUCK(THAT IS WHAT SHUTS THE FUEL OF INSIDE THE CARBS)

YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE THEM APART AND CLEN THEM VERY GOOD,AND THIS IS GOING TO BE QUITE A JOB ON THIS BIKE.

IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO TAKE IT TO SHOP IT WOULD BE EASYER FOR YOU.;HOWEVER A GOOD GUESS AT THE PRICE TO DO THIS ,I WOULD SAY AT THE DEALER YOU MAY BE LOOKING AT 300.00 DOLLARS ARE MORE DEPENDING ON THE DAMAGE.

OH I ALMOST FORGOT.YOU WILL HAVE TO CLEAN THE TANK OUT OF THE OLD FUEL AND MAYBE THE VARNISHING.AND I DONT KNOW IF THIS BIKE HAS A FUEL PUMP ARE IF IT GRAVITY FEED .YOU MAY HAVE TO CLEAN OUT THE PUMP IF IT HAS ONE AS I SAID I DONT KNOW ON THIS BIKE.AND THE PETCOCK VALVE(FUEL ON AND OF VAVLE) MAY ALSO NEED TO BE LOOKED AT

HOPE THIS HELP AND AGAIN REMEBER ABOUT THE AIR BOX I HAVE SEEN SOME NICE BIKES BURT FROM THIS.

Take the carburetors apart and either rebuild them or clean them thoroughly.

SOURCE: can you put fuel cleaner in your gas tank? my bike

Hello shawn...Yes indeed gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems, ranging from hard starting, to rough running, to no starting at all...If your bike was stored for 2 years the gasoline in it has degraded beyond use. Even if the gas was treated with stabiliser before it was stored...it will still degrade in 10-12 months, if not sooner. I'm suprised your bike will even start. I suggest you drain ALL the gas out of the tank, Rinse and refill with fresh gas, drain your carbs as well...the stale gas has most likely clogged the pilot jets, draining the carb bowls will help.
Go to your parts store and buy a can of "Seafoam" pour 1/2 of it in with your fresh gas..use the other 1/2 on your next tank of gas.
Replace fuel filter after 1st tank, the seafoam will dislodge any debris that was in the fuel tank. It will also clean the combustion chambers and carb jets. Check your carb boots for any cracks or detoration that would cause a vacuum leak. Replace your spark plugs. If your bike is still running rough after this, then the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned and/or rejetted.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Transmission fill location.


The transmission and engine oil are together. Put the bike on the main stand. Sitting on the bike by your right foot there is a fill plug/cap to ad oil and below that there is a dip stick. Turn the dipstick counter clockwise to remove it. Now wipe it and stick it in (do not thread it in) pull it out and check it. If it needs oil add it. Also check the dill fluid level at the rear tire. Thanks Rod

Clutch not engaging? If you have the bike in gear and engine not running...release the clutch you can still roll the bike? Can you feel proper tension on the clutch lever?

Where is the neutral safety switch on a 1998 goldwing


my neutral switch is a hit and miss. I'm just curious if it could be the battery. I let the bike sit tonight for a couple hours as I took parts off and turned on the battery the green light came on and then faded away. So I don't have a battery tester so I put it on charge and the lights is nice and bright so I turned the bike off put everything back and see if it will start so I can get to work. why would this happen sometimes and not others. Battery is 1.5 years old Decka battery. I heard replacing the switch is a big job and not a guaranty. thanks for the help

I just bought a 1982 honda goldwing that has been sitting for 1 year. It has a new battery and head. It wouldn't fire at all and I adjusted the valves and it runs but only on one side. What could it be?


Sitting would most likely be bad gas in a carburator. Verify that the spark is good, look for mouse nests in the air box, and make sure the carburators are not gummed up with old gas....assuming that it didn't run good before the valve adjustment.

No rear brake master cyl.full


If it has been sitting on the sidestand, the cylinders on the low side occasionally become fouled - which will clear up pretty fast or after changing the plugs. There is probably gunk in the rear caliper from sitting & dealer may want to check the fronts as well. Dealers are really expensive & I would guess that they would want $250 or so just to fix the rear brake issue. When i needed all my calipers cleaned, my dealer wanted almost $1000., so I did them myselves for about $50. Rick

1984 aspencade starts w/choke and revs up, runs smooth. Take off


My 'wing won't run unless it has been warmed up some. I would suggest that you r&r your carbs to make sure the jets in the bottom are working correctly. They tend to get plugged up, especially after sitting & the aluminum flaking off inside... Rick
