Rejetting a Mikuni 44mm carb

standard carbys will cover a .020 oversize bore
melted piston is from detonation which is lean mixture or incorrect ignition timing
the oil will be a metered amount so it will be correct for all rpm
items like incorrect float level and air filter are the suspect causes

What would cause oil to get in the air filter? Also, what would cause the front tire to wear unevenly.

Uneven tire wear is caused by running with the tire pressure too low. Often 35 PSI will keep the tire wear more even. If you ride a long distance with a strong cross wind you may notice wear on the windward side of the tire (just off center). This is because after riding in the crosswind for a long period of time you have been leaning into the wind and are wearing the tire off center.
Oil on the air filter typically is coming from the crankcase breather. Check your oil, it is probably contaminated with gas from your tank and the oil needs to be changed as well as your air filter.
If you have a vacuum style fuel petcock , the vacuum diaphragm has a hole in it. The gas leaks past the diaphragm, down the vacuum line, into the intake manifold, into the cylinder, past the piston rings, and into the crankcase where it mixes with your oil.
If you have a standard on / off style petcock, all you have to do is leave your fuel on and have a float needle stick in one of you carburetors. The result is the same , the crankcase fills with all your expensive gas from the fuel tank. This can happen to any motorcycle that is in perfect order.
If the four hole washer in any style petcock gets worn (thin or torn) , that can be the cause of a fuel spill into the engine. Always turn your fuel petcock off when not riding.
Start with a thorough inspection of your fuel petcock for bad rubber parts. Replace any bad parts with new. K&L makes after market fuel petcock repair kits if you just want to rebuild . If money is no object a brand spanking new fuelcock will work for sure. If running a quality fuel system cleaner like "Chevron Techron" does not stop the carburetor float needles from sticking, your may have to disassemble the carburetors and clean them properly and replacing the float needles during the process.

I have a petcock rebuild kit for a 1997 gsxr Suzuki, I need to know how the parts fit together. where the diaphram goes and the spring especially top of petcock or below

Hello the vacuum chamber is the part with the nipple for the vacuum line when you remove that there is the spring then you have the diaphragm that is on the plastic center remove the old diaphragm take note the is a small pin hole on it careful install the new diaphragm the center aluminum piece with the o-ring faces into the body of the petcock make sure the pin hole aligns with the together, remember pin hole on the plastic center piece there is a pin hole on the diaphragm membrane and a pin hole on the main body of the petcock.
one other thing make sure the surfaces do not have anything on there or your diaphragm will not seal properly any pieces of of the old diaphragm oxidation clean it off with edge of a plastic knife or wooden pop stick don' use a screw driver or metal scraper.
hope this helps.

Do all three gas lines from carb connect together and lead to gas tank

2 lines are vent lines, make sure they are unpluged , and clear. the other is the fuel line that runs to the petcock, and one from the petcock to the front of the carb near center of motor, this is a vaccuum line witch allows the petcock to open , and let fuel flow in the off position from tank to carb. hope this helps

The petcock on the 1980 GS1000G has no markings other than "Pr." To get gas flowing to the engine should the slot in the petcock be vertical or horizonal?

center poistion is on, PR stands for prime (gas always flows) and bypasses the vacuum controlled portion of the valve, the other poistion is Reserve. center is run and onlu delivers gas when the engine is cranking over or running, thias is the normal position u leave the tank selector in..

I have two loose hoses coming off my petcock? where do they go

On your silverwing you have a "vacuum operated petcock" which means that the carbs draw a vacuum and allow the fuel to flow from the petcock. The front hose is the vacuum hose that should run to the center of the carbs. The second is a drain hose - it's advised that you do have a small hose connect here, so that dirt does not find its way into the petcock. This hose will simply run down past the swing arm to the ground. This would prevent any gas from dumping itself onto the engine if your petcock fails. If your bike runs without the vacuum hose attached, your petcock has failed and will need to be rebuilt.

Fuel pipes te610 husqvarna

the tank thumbscrew on the left side is you reserve. it needs to connect to the petcock on the right side, across the carb to the top pipe. the petcock should have arrows on it (backside). the bottom petcock pipe goes to the carb. the carbs inlet pipe is on the right side and is adjustable...single screw in the center of inlet pipe allowing it to be rotated for straighter hose connection. that is depending on year of coarse.
