Question about 2004 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic

2000 Suzuki Intruder 800... stuck float?

2000 Suzuki Intruder 800... fuel comes out of the vent tube about 5 seconds after the bike starts and continues until the bike is shut off. I tried tapping the carb to unstick the float, but it didn't work. I've accepted that I probably need to take it to a shop, but the nearest is about 15 miles away. My question is this - what can I do to minimize the leakage while riding this 15 miles? Is there anything else I should consider? Thanks!

Drop the carb bowl and clear the float needle and seat.. Pull yje carb would be easier. It's not worth the ride. simple fix. just watch what you are doing and you can save some big bucks.

Drain the carb floats and clean with Seafoam. Gas breaks down after about 6 months and the ethanol in the gas coats the carb.

Have a 2000 Suzuki Intruder 800. Back cylinder


When cleaning a multi carb bike, it is best to take them all off. Clean and reset float levels on both. Then reinstall, set both idle mixture screws about 1 turn out. Then adjust, and you'll probably have to syncronise them also.
