SOURCE: 2001 raptor cabs not getting gas

Ihad this problem, I let gas sit in the motorcyle over winter. Bad mistake,The whole carb needs cleaned. I took my carb to the yamaha shop and they charged me $146.00 to fix it. Or you can take the jets and needle seat out and soak it in carb cleaner for a couple of days. Yamaha soak the carb in carb cleaner for 2 or 3 days, remember to remove any plastic, gaskets, rubber.

SOURCE: gas flowing out the bottom of carb....

that's your overflow. your float needle is either dirty or your float height needs to be adjusted.

SOURCE: ran out of gas then problem started gas leaks

You will need to remove and clean the carb. When you run one out of fuel it allows all the trash in the tank to go into the carb. The fuel leaking from the overflow is trash in the float needle and needs to be cleaned.

SOURCE: my klx 400 stock carb

check and clean the carb, there must be a dirt or an small object blocking the intake line of carb causing to malfunction the fuel floater. the floater acts like a control switch when the fuel reservoiris already full the floater floats causing to shut of the fuel.

Just installed a new carburetor on a Tecumseh Snow King 8 hp engine. Gas is getting to the carburetor but no gas is filling the bowl and engine won't start

Sounds like the carb needle valve is stuck closed. Try loosening the bolts holding the carb to the engine, then tapping the carb lightly with a hammer. If gas then flows to the carb, re-tighten the carb bolts evenly and not too tightly.

I have a toro super cycler gts 5 model 20475 6.0 engine i put new gas in it a new spark plug but if i loosen the gas bowl no gas come out and it wont start what could be wrong

Ensure fresh gas is in tank. Follow gas line from tank to carb. Have locking pliers ready to pinch off gas line or close gas line valve. Remove gas line from carb. observe gas flow to carb. Remove carb bowl from bottom of carb. Attach gas line to carb. Does gas flow to carb. Observe float, float down gas flows, float up no gas flow. If float is bad replace float assembly or carb. Remove float mounting pin and needle metering valve. Use a bread wrapper pealed back an inch so thin wire can clean out port of meter needle. Use wire to clean out center port. Observe bowl screw look for hole thru screw, clean out with wire if preset. Re-assemble carb. Clean replace air filter. Fill oil. 30w. Prime motor, pull rope 10 times to start. No start, replace carb.

Can't get gas to 22hp Kohler. I have check the filter, lines and the fuel pump. Tank is half full and when the engine spins over, no gas. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

If it starts fine and idles fine but then stalls or doesn't have power when you juice it, it sounds like a fuel problem. It is unlikely a carb issue if it gets regular use and as long as its not sitting for long periods of time. Check the vent hole on the gas cap (if you have one). If it is a gravity-fed fuel system and the vent hole on the gas cap is clogged with dirt, dust, and debris, then the gas will not flow to the carb fast enough and you'll get a very lean mixture. This is because the engine exhaust cycle creates a vacuum which siphons fuel from the gas tank to the carbs- and if the vent hole is clogged the fuel wont flow. Sure, it will idle fine because the engine isn't demanding much fuel at idle, but when you open up the throttle it will stall because the air:fuel ratio will be too high (symptomatic of a lean mixture) Clear out the vent hole in the gas cap and see if t Hope this helps

How can i tell if the gas cap is giving me problems. The bike will not start as if there was no gas getting to the carb. just had the carb cleaned out and that didnt seem to fix the problem. Thinking it...

Simple-open the gas cap and try to start it. I have had the gas cap vent fail in Honda street bikes and prevented fuel flow. Also, I believe this bike has a vacuum operated shut off valve. Though they normally don't fail, if the vacuum line connected to it is leaking it won't open. You may have accidently misrouted the hoses during carb removal. The valve will be inline before the carbs if it has one.

Hav 2009 yamaha 125 vino small gas line on left side keeps flowingas out wile its runing help.thanks

That tube is an overflow tube. It is leaking fuel because the cabs float valve is not shutting off the flow of fuel. The carb must be removed and inspected for debris as well as cleaned.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Maurader 250 - we bought it used and cannot get it to start - we have had it running but the next day it will not start. |We have changed the oil, plugs, cleaned the carb and now it...

Drain the carb with the gas valve on the tank turned off. Now turn the valve back on and see if gas again begins to flow out of the float bowl. If no gas drains with the valve open then remove the fuel line at the carb and check to see that fuel flows freely through the fuel line. If gas flows freely out of the fuel line then the float needle is stuck closed or trash is plugging up the needle jet assembly. If so, remove the float bowl and free up the needle. Use spray carb cleaner and the little "straw" that comes with the can to direct the spray into the float needle fitting. Fuel should flow when the float is down and stop flowing when the float is lifted. Pull a spark plug and ground the metal against the cylinder. Check for spark. If there is no spark then check the operation of the kill switch on the side stand and the handlebar. Use a multimeter to check the switches. Get fresh gas and install an in-line fuel filter to keep any trash out of the carb. Clean the air filter. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Your cabs need rebuild, something is stuck in the carb or air line cracked

If you have rebuilt the carb check for carb gaskett leak that caused and let the air flow in
When to choke is on the air is block and prevent air flow but allowed small amount of air to keep the engine running
After your engine warmed up the heat in the compression burn much faster so you have to let air in by turn off the choke
Good luck

Gas is not getting into the carb.

follow the fuel line down to the carb. There should be a filter inside the carb that is probably clogged. Then make sure gas flows through the line from the tank to the carb.

The carb is not receiving gas flow

Get a rebuild kit for carb, also take it apart and clean everything. Also make sure the airfilter is clean and not dirty and clogged up.
