DO NOT TRY TO START YET!
Remove the plugs and spin the engine. Could be a hydrolic lock and bend the piston rods.

SOURCE: Fuel leaking out the overflow tube...

The overflow tube coming out behind the swingarm? If that is where it is coming from sounds like your float in one of the carbs could be stuck.

SOURCE: flooding on a 1979 suzuki gs750e

the floats in the carbs are stuck down...you need to adjust the float levels in the carbs.  You may have adjusted them too high.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem would be the float needle not closing the inlet seat. This could be caused by a dirt, sand, contaminant, worn needle ends, grooves on the seat. Unfortunately, the only fix would be to pull down the carbs again and redo. Considerations are:

  • ensure the pointed end of the float needle are not nicked, worn, necked, scratch;
  • ensure that the inlet seat are perfectly round and smooth. You may need a very very fine abrasive material and a Q-tip or cotton buds and do a bit of lapping ( almost similar to valve grinding);
  • ensure the float height is correctly adjusted;
  • verify float is not punctured with fuel sloshing inside.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

weak wires are sometimes the cause of loss of power,if they have been really hot from trying to start and become higher in resistance. looking at the ends of wires where connection are sometimes can reveal bluing of the copper inside (signs of heat). loose cable ends look good but dont perform well.Test charging system for proper charge output to voltage reg. and battery.Short tolerance to load under start conditions could be due to not being charged at high enough volts from charging system. (too many chicken lites or other stuff drawing current)

SOURCE: ltz 250 wont idle needs full choke to run.cleaned

hi,sounds to me like the air fuel ratio is all up the ***,locate the air/fuel screw on the carb(normally on the side)screw the screw right in untill it stops,then back the screw out 1.5 turns,this should get the bike to run without the choke,once you have the bike running simply turn the screw in or out untill the bike settles into a nice steady idle,should be good to go,hope this helps...cheers

Why is gas leaking out my Evap fresh air hose every time i try to put gas in my car and start it


I suspect you are OVERFILLING your tank...

There should be a direct connection from your canister to the top of the fill tube. It is intended to safely draw out gas fumes.

even if you don't OVERFILL... gasoline can expand (coming from the cold ground... into a nice warm car) enough to repeat the symptoms you have depicted.

Try putting in less gas...

Things will most probably resolve themselves... otherwise you might need a new canister.

Be safe... DO NOT OVERFILL.

I have a 1986 suzuki 650 savage the carb seems to have a problem. It started flooding gas coming out the over flow. I took it off and took the float cover off and replaced the needle needle set and float....


Yea these carbs can be a real pain sometimes to get right. First thing you need to do is varify the float seat is working and totally stopping all fuel flow.... and all the jets, main, pilot and choke circuit are absolutely clean. Bench test the float needle valve by connecting a hose to the carb fuel line nipple and letting gas gravity feed as it would in a run position. if it tests ok, remount it on the bike...
i'm guessing you have a vacuum petcock on this year model? If you do, it needs to be inspected.
In the "on" position you should have no gas flow coming through the petcock, In the "prime" position it free flows. If there is a hole in the diaphram the engine will **** gas and not air (vacuum) through the hose and it will flood. If you don't have a vacuum line on your petcock then it is a different kind. Be sure to check your crankcase, it could be way past full with gas that has entered, dont start your engine like that...drain it all out. make sure the air filter is dry. You will have to replace the spark plugs...a gas soaked plug won't fire.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

My airbox is full of oil


Check your oil level. If it is too high, your oil may be full of gasoline. Your vacuum petcock may be leaking gas past a diaphragm or your float bowl needles are sticking and are over flowing gas into the engine. This causes your oil to be diluted with gas, the crankcase becomes too full, and the gasoline diluted oil is then blowing through the breather tube and into the air box. Needles sticking in the carburetors can happen at any time even to new motorcycles. If you have vacuum petcocks inspect the vacuum diaphragms for leaking. Clean the carburetors and replace the float needles if they show wear. Change the gas fouled oil and filter. Change your air filter if it is paper and has become oil fouled. Hope this helps.

Fuil in air box getting in oil dr200se year 2005 have carb soaking now olny 500 miles cant be worn may be the dry rot o ring in pet **** so far all the diaframs good in pet **** and diafram in top of...


What you are dealing with is a vacuum petcock with a bad vacuum diaphragm , in this case fuel is bypassing the petcock via the vacuum line and filling the engine (oil) with gasoline.
If you have a standard petcock that is leaking (not shutting off properly) or just left in the on position a stuck float needle will also fill your engine (oil) with gasoline. This can happen with a clean carburetor and a good float needle. It just sticks and you have to change your oil. If you have the kind of fuel petcock that allows you to turn it off when not in use , always turn off your gas when not riding.
You will have to change your oil if it is fouled with gasoline. I suspect a vacuum operated petcock is at fault. With standard petcocks I have seen new motorcycles in perfect order stick a float needle ( Kei Hin Carburetors ) and fill there engines and air boxes with gas/oil mix. On vacuum petcocks the diaphragm that shuts off the fuel flow is usually leaking and at fault.

CRANKS OVER WONT START HAS SPARK,FUEL TO PRESSURE TESTING FITTING? 454 7.4 FUEL PUMP OK NEW FUEL FILTER WHAT DO I LOOK FOR NEXT.


It's not flooded is it? Try holding the gas pedal to the floor while trying to start it. If that don't work try taking an oil can and put some gasoline in it. Now try to squirt some gas into the intake somehow, there should be a hose that goes from the air cleaner tube the valve cover. Pull that hose off and squit some gas into the air cleaner tube. Will it fire like that? Are you getting a check engine light? It's possible the cam position sensor is bad you will still have spark but, not at the right time. Good luck.

Small amount of gas in rear air filter compartment.Changed out old degraded foam air filters for new K&N Filters


The carbs spit back a little fuel normally and sometimes they'll flood over and stop flooding as the engine shakes but the air filter should dry off as the motor runs. or the gas is real old? Does the bike run OK?
