The carbs are plugged and need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out along with the tank and petcock. If the tank has any rust it remove the tank and put a tank liner kit in it. Most cycle shops and online stores will/may have the liner kit. The carbs will easily plug up with the new formulated gas even sometimes in less than a years time. If you are not familiar with the cleaning process, it is best to take it to a dealer ship or mechanic. Some carbs have jets inside that will have orifice as small as .010 inch. Most home mechanics or "do it your selfers" will not have tool that can clean those size jets.

SOURCE: trouble removing carbs on 96 CBR 600 F3

Theres a big lip holding it. Make sure all cables and pipes/hoses are removed, spray with some WD40 or similar spray lube and then try prying it with something that won't damage the carbs or engine.

hi, each lead has the specific number on it. if you do this correctly then they genrally give you an idea to where the sit in the coils( the way they bend :-) ) also i believe the coils are better off been attached to the frame once you are sure leads are in corect order and possitioned correctly in the coils.i just presumed the coils neaded earthing. make sure battery is pleny charged as a bad battery can just hinder. it is also very easy to flood the bike so just check the plugs again. if they are unusually wet then dry them off and try again . otherwise maybe try cleaning all electics.

hope this somehow helped

Hi, Bob and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

I put a new fuel pump on my 90 cbr 600, when I start it up it flows fuel out of a hose on the far left carb, and all over the motor, is it supplying too much fuel?


Sounds like a stuck float on the left carb. Try tapping the carb bowl while the gas is running through. carbs probably need cleaning.

Cbr 600 shut off while driving


Has the bike been sitting up for any length of time? Sounds like the needle/seats are sticking (they regulate the flow of gas into the float bowls of the carbs).. a full float bowl will last about a mile or two..then you run out of gas.. then. if you let it sit.. they slowly refill.. (add choke).. and it will restart and repeat this over and over..if this sounds right... have the carbs professionally cleaned/checked and calibrated!!
Have you checked the petcock to make sure its flowing gas freely to the carbs?

Do you have fuel in the float bowls when it won't start? Carbs recently cleaned? On my 1990 CBR600 it turned out to be the fuel pump relay, i had the same situation a few years ago. It started with sporadic shut downs like you have, once nice and hot usually. Then one day, it gave up completely.

See if you can hear the fuel pump running when you're cranking, if you shut the petcock off and run it dry for a very short period of time, you'll definitely hear if it's running or not. Not recommended for any length of time, as the fuel is the pump's lubricant. The relay was causing me lots of grief as everything that would normally be wrong was tested and or rebuilt. I believe there's another test for the relay in the service manual, but the jist of it is if the pump isn't being given juice, it won't work. It is a carbureted bike, but because of the float bowl location to the rest of the fuel system, it's not the lowest point, so it needs the pump to keep filled.

They must degrade over time and be effected by heat, it's just a little part under the seat, I got a replacement from a salvage yard and it's worked perfectly since. It was a desperate situation, beautiful night ride planned and it gave up for good. The only place that had one Saturday afternoon in my area was a salvage yard that said it tested good the dealerships were out. I'd recommend a new one, but the used one was half the price and worked great.

Floats are sticking in carbs and staying open which causes fuel to overflow.you can try tapping float bowls with screwdriver handle sometimes this will free up floats .If this dosen't work you have to remove and clean carbs.Good Luck

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

Engine stops after about two or three miles then starts again plus teh fuel leaks unless the tap is off. also its smells like its running rich ,will this be a side effect of the same prob ? many thanx ,pip


This is a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the offending carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.
