I cleaned the bottom bowls of the carb on my 78 650 and the first carb on the right hand side the gas is running out of the bottom nipple.


Hi, Jeremy and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

2002suzuki vl800 float level spacs.any one?


6.5 - 7.5mm 0.26" - 0.30" Hold the carb body at 45 degrees to the table top with the float arm just contacting the needle valve. The float tang for adjusting is the small metal plate attached to the float.
If you are going to be working on it much get a Clymer Manual.
Mine is 2005 VS800 Boulevard

Carburetor


Sounds like you did not get the float adjustment set correctly. It is very particular and it is critical for proper running etc etc. Carb has to be set on the throat and then tilted between 15 to 20 degrees to set the float level or it will be wrong. Greater than 20 degrees will collapse thew pin return spring, less than 15 will not set float properly on needle. Then setting must be 0.413 to 0.453 inches.

Skips at full throttle


Could be one of two common problems. Fuel hose in tank is old, broken, or leaking air. The other is debris in port on carb. Sometimes carb cleaner gets it but really should get a carb rebuild kit, very cheap, an replace tank hose too. Easy job just remember where you took each part from an in a clean place an dont use paper towels, lent.

the floats in the bottom of the carb need adjusting the are to low

When setting the float level be aware that the spring loaded bumper on the fuel inlet needle valve may have a tendency to compress under the weight of the float assembly which will skew your measurement. Before you obtain your measurement you'll need to make sure that the float assembly tang just barely makes contact with the spring-loaded bumper. Sometimes it is easier to hold the carb body at a 45-degree angle to avoid compressing the spring in the fuel inlet needle.

If you find that your measurement does not match your float level spec then you can carefully bend the float assembly tang to achieve your desired measurement. Be sure to recheck your work, and if you feel confident that your float level is spot on then you can reinstall your carb and get back to riding.

Adjust washer height on needle. Carb needs more/less air in a 25 degree climate change.

Carburator leaking gas out of over flow tube


Sounds like a stuck float. try gently tapping on side of carb near bottom where float assembly is located to see if it frees up if it doesn't you will need to remove and clean your carb and check your float adj.
