Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

during the winter you can get build up on the tip of your spark plug that will prevent the engine from firing. remove the spark plug and soak it in gas for ten minutes or so. Dry it ogg with a clean towel reinstall it and it should start right up.

The solution is to replace the needle and seat inside the carb. That controls the amount of fuel pulled in through the intake. Also, it is necessary to ensure that the float level is correctly set.(Usually level with the bowl on this model)

SOURCE: my XS850, though getting spark,
Remove carbs and make sure all of the fuel inlets are seating properly. you should probably clean them good and set all the floats while you have them off.

check your YICS box for leaks. 1. There is a seperation in the middle of the box, check for visible possible leaks. If you seem to have nothing visible, put a plastice tube in one side and the other. Block one end of a tube and blow into the other. You should get resistance as if no air is able to escape. Youcan also take one tube and place it in a continer of water. When you blow into the other end you should get NO BUBBLES; if you do there is a leak. You can use a high temp gasket maker to re-seal the box, make sure of course that you keep the gasket aterial ONLY where it is needed to keep the compartments seperated as they are. After these tests there is a way to re-seal the center seperation but it requires a band saw and a perfect cut down the center of that seperation. Please! do not attempt this without more information as a mistake will most likely ruin the box.
