Do not run this motorcycle anymore until you fix your carb(s). you have a serious flooding condition that could lead to a total loss. Your float or needle/seat or both are bad. depending on the age of the bike depends on how much money it's going to cost and where you can find the parts but they are out there...

SOURCE: smoke like hell

If it's only smoking on startup, I wouldn't worry about it too much. What color is the smoke? White means leaking valve stem seals. If it's black, it means you are running ruch, but you want that during the warmup phase anyway. If it's running fineexcept for a little smoke on startup, I wouldn't worry about it (enough to tear into the carbs again anyway) Wink Oh if it was your floats, it would more likely be smoking through the rev range all the time.

SOURCE: Engine filling up with gas

there is no way for fuel to get passed the rings right? So if you filled the head with fuel, it would just work its way down the exhaust pipe and out the back, just like its doing. The only way of getting fuel into the sump is; if you have seriously bad rings (it would be burning oil) OR if its getting through the breather system. I don't even think if the injectors were on full-time, it still wouldn't get into the sump... very strange. Are you sure its not coolant? A serious coolant leak can be completely unnoticeable from the outside, but catastrophic to the inside. __________________

The carburetor float is not closing off completely. The fuel fills carb bowl, leaks into crackcase (Yes, fuel will flow past the rings) via intake or crackcase vents. Install fuel cutoff valve at tank and rebuild carb.

Hi, a friend of mine had the same problem with his old gs750. In his case it turned out to be a damaged diaphram rubber in the petrol valve. In addition to this he also had a bad needle and seat in one of the carb bowls. With both these faults the petrol flow could not be shut off, so gravity took over and filled the crankcase. hope this helps, Bikemanbig.

2015 Moto Guzzi v 7 special is rough idling and exhaust pipe is heating up to red hot?

Could be running way to lean and the fuel may have too much alcohol or water or the injectors may be clogged/restricted.

Back fires at 2000rpms left pipe only

If you're running stock pipes, the rear pipe splits.
Half goes to the left, the other half merges with the front going out the right.

You state just the left pipe "pops", so the first thing to check is for an exhaust leak on the left pipe, starting where it splits and working your way back.

Fuel coming bottom exhaust pipe

Check you fuel pipes in between the V. Your bike wouldn't run at all if there was that much fuel going through the exhaust pipe( not for very long anyway!)

I am getting pre-ingition knock when I throttle fast and front exhaust pipe is turning blue. Also backfires when letting off throttle. Only 8,000 miles

Backfiring when slowing down is usually caused by leaking exhaust gaskets in the head, or head pipe to muffler connection. A lean condition on the front cylinder could be dirt in the carburetor. Although the bluing in the pipe could be caused by unburned fuel from a malfunctioning choke mechanism on the front carburetor or leaving the choke on too long. Often the the pinging is caused by ethanol in the fuel you are using. Your bike should be designed to run on 87 Octane regular unleaded style gas. If you have non-ethanol style fuel available in your area , I would run a tank of non-ethanol fuel with a dose of Chevron Techron fuel system cleaner in the tank. Inspect the choke mechanism is working correctly and replace your exhaust gaskets.

883 Sportster burning rich

hi,it sounds to me like the bike is actually running to lean,or,you have a leaking exhaust,what happens is when you let off the throttle,clean air is drawn into the exhaust through any leaks,the next time the bike fires,the hot exhaust gasses mix with the air in the exhaust and you get a backfire when they all ignite,check your exhaust system for leaks first,if you can feel air coming out of seams etc when the bike is running then air can get in to,changing theair/fuel ratio is quite easy,simply with a screw driver turn the screw in(richens mix)untill the bike starts to struggle,then back it out untill the bike settles into a nice steady idle,if you take itout to far(leans out the mix) the bike will again start to struggle,all you have to do is find the mid point between the two and you will have the mixture pretty close to bang on.if you are not confident to do this ,take the bike to a shop and have it done,it will be a relatively short visit and wont cost much...hope this helps..cheers

Our Moto Guzi Nevada is surging all the time and has been back to a dealer several times and they cant find out what it wrong with it. · Inspect for running rough etc + put on axone scan tool + test...

I am not a Moto Guzi mechanic but in the world of Japanese bikes the problem would be trash in the carb partially blocking the main jet and / or internal fuel circuits. Tighten all fittings, carb to manifold as air leaks could be contributing to the problem. If your bike has fuel injection, have the fuel pump checked. Be sure the gas tank venting is not plugged whether carb or injection. Check and clean the filter screens on the pickup tubes inside the gas tank. Be certain the exhaust pipes are clear of obstructions. An internal collapse inside an exhaust pipe can restrict air flow. The bike can not run properly if it can't get rid of burned gasses. Remove the exhaust pipes briefly to eliminate the exhaust system as a problem. I guess I should mention the obvious, how clean is the air filter? Bikes gotta breathe in and out too. If these ideas don't help, just re-post the problem and perhaps someone else has an idea. Best wishes.

'07 Triumph Bonneville idles but wont accelerate

What happens when you try to accelerate?

Does the exhaust smell 'weird' when it's idling?

The most likely problem, especially with the bike sitting up during summer, would be gas has gone stale. If the bike sits long enough, the gas will actually turn into a varnish.

Drain the tank, refill with fresh gas, and let it run a while.
Basically, you have to run out whatever gas is between the tank and the cylinders, so the fresh gas can get to the cylinders.

I'd put a box fan blowing on the front of the bike to help keep the ehat down. Blip the throttle after a few inutes. Depending onhow much old gas is 'stored' in the fuel lines and such, it may take 10 or 20 minutes to burn out the old gas. Keep blipping every few minutes, and let it cool down after 20 minutes. Some bikes have short fuel path and clear in 2 minutes at idle, I've seen custom setups that took over an hour.
