I think you would be better of checking the ignition pick-up located on the right side engine cover. you may want consider searching for info on the ignition pickup, as apparently it is a weak link on these engines. That was the first thing i repalced when i got got mine as it had sat for a while.

SOURCE: Gas leaks from hose running from tank connected to nothing

i would guess that that is your fuel line and reconnecting it would be a good idea as leaking fuel and motorbike engines dont mix that well and normally result in your bike going up in flames

SOURCE: Gas leaking, but not sure where

The gas valve should be shut off too. Sounds like floats in carb. are stick up not shutting of gas flow.

Remove the petcock valve and dissasemble and clean it may have a clogged passage or this type may have bowl with a screen in side that is dirty, clean the valve with gum out and blow out with compressed air if possible.

Pressure build up in gas tank Sporster


Harley Davidson has handled gas tank venting in a couple ways over the years. One is to allow the venting to be done by the gas cap the second is to have a non-venting cap and connect a vent hose to the tank which vents air from the top of the tank. You said your hose was dry rotted so it should be replaced. However, I don't feel that, by itself, would allow pressure to build up. Replace the hose and, while it's off, ensure the connection to the top of the tank is not plugged. When you put the tank back on, ensure the hose doesn't get crushed. It sounds like proper venting is all that is required.

Something else to consider is that a plugged vent would, most likely, cause a vacuum in the tank instead of pressure. (As the tank empties while riding, air can't come in to fill the space vacated by the gas.) The only reason I could expect that you build up pressure is if the vent is plugged and the tank gets heated from an outside source such as the sun.

I hope this is helpful.

Yamaha 1978 750 Special Fuel Leaking Problem


These type of fuel shut offs do not have a manual off position. They are automatically operated by engine vaccuum when working properly. They have malfunctioned and allowed fuel to overflow into the airfilter box(the black box) untill repair time use a long piece of hose to connect the large outlet of each shutoff to eachother or plug the end of two short pieces. The carbs have a drain screw on the very bottom of each facing left , right or straight down. you could also drain the carbs however once the fuel supply is cut to them they should not leak any further. Leave the carb fuel hoses from the tank disconnected. You should drain the tank by siphon and the residual gas that is already in the air box can be drained from the hose on the bottom of the box. This is a mess but once you get all this drained it should stop leaking

As soon as I put gas in the tank it all drains out, presumably passing through the carbs and out of the air intake. bike's a 1980 yamaha maxim 650cc.


they have a vacumn opperated fuel tap, should only allow fuel to pass when the engine is running, unless you have it on pri(prime) if it runs out with the tap on run(on) or res(reserve) the tap need a kit.
unless the fuel and vacumn hoses have been mixed up

Lt-f250x fuel vale has on- res-pri what is the pri position for


( PRI ) is the primer position for the petcock ( fuel valve) . This position is used for a couple of reason. this kind of valve works off vacuuum from the carbs, but if you run out of fuel you or remove the tank you can't create vacuum, so putting the valve into the PRI position allows fuel to flow inton the carbs without vacuum so you can start the bike. Once the bike has started you should switch the valve back to the ON position ON= normal position, PRI= primer position, RES= reserve postion. I hope this helps!!!

What position on the petcock is on off or res on a 93 katana gsx600f


There is no OFF, you have RES toward front , ON is all the way down, and prime toward back, PRI is used when it has been sitting for awhile. RES and ON wont let gas out unless bike is runnig. There is a vac hose on back of petcock that lets ON and RES work it must be connected..

What is the off position for the petcock in the vstar 250? I only see ON, PRI, and RES. I just got the bike from someone else and I know that you are supposed to turn the petcock to the off position when...


up (res) is reserve, down(on) is primary, center(marked as pri is for prime, used for if ran out of fuel or drained the carb or been sitting for a long time). There is no off as the fuel system is vacuum fed instead of greavity)

Positions "Reserveswitch"


The On position is where you run the bike after filling the tank. The Res position is when you are almost out of fuel and the motor stutters you turn the switch it it and that will give you about 1/2 a gallon of gas left in the tank to get to a gas station and refill. Pri is for priming the carbs only. If you have ran out of gas after using the reserve fuel you switch it to this position to fill the float bowls with fuel. Do this for only 30 seconds and switch it back to On position.

GSF 600 SV 97 fuel problem


If the bike will run with the choke on then you have a lean fuel/air mixture condition. Most common cause is a vacuum leak or faulty pitcock. Spray some carb cleaner around the carb mounts with engine at idle, if the rpms change there is your leak.
Your petcock should have two hoses attached to it. One hose is the main flow to the carbs. The other hose is/should be a vacuum hose that allows the gas to flow (when vacuum is applied). When your petcock is in the PRI position, this will bypass the vacuum hose. Leaving it in PRI when motor off could possibly flood the engine. Check to see if that vacuum hose is attached properly with no splits or cracks near both joints. If all is attached properly your problem is the petcock itself. It has a diaphragm and 'return' spring. Weak return spring, clogged petcock, damaged diaphragm can all cause your problem. Also, after you recleaned and inspected the carbs, were they synched... if not, this needs to be done.
Good luck...i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.

No Gas Symptoms


Your normal setting should be at ON. The fuel flows when there is engine vacuum and is off when there is no vacuum. It's a safety feature - the gas doesn't flow if you crash...and the gas doesn't flow (and flood your crankcase) when the bike is off. Like rockstar said - it will feel like a loss of power - you might literally twist the grip and wonder why nothing is happening, Have a feel (practice) for where your valve is and how it turns from ON to RES. A twist to RES will start the fuel flowing. (So long as you're rolling down the road with the clutch out so the engine is turning making vacuum - remember) If it's taken you a while to recognize the problem and get the valve turned - it'll take seconds - minute (?) to refill the carbs and catch back up. PRI - that's for the bad news that you already know to be fact - you ran out of gas and walked to the station and bought a can and walked back. There is no way to make vacuum with a dead engine; and the carbs are dry. PRI is the setting that does not require engine vacuum to flow fuel. It is made to prime the carbs after the system has run dry.

Fuel switch


The fuel switch has three positions:
The arrow on the handle points to the position selected.

ON = Normal operation setting. Fuel will not flow through the hose to the carb until the engine is on. Gas in the carb bowl is used to start the engine. The arrow is DOWN when in the on position.

PRI = Fuel flows through the hose to the carb at all times. This setting is used if the bike has been sitting around and the fuel level in the carb may be too low to start the engine. For safety use this setting only to fill the carb bowl with gas or for brief testing.

RES = If you run out of gas, this setting will provide extra gas so you can hopefully find more.
