    Hi, Dave first thing you need to do is determine whether or not the fuel is leaking from the fuel line that feeds the carbs if it is, then repair as necessary, if not then 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.
    8. Damaged petcock diaphragm allowing fuel to flow through the vacuum line into the combustion chamber.

Instructions
    • 1 Remove the rider's seat, using an Allen socket to unscrew the pair of bolts that secure the rear of the seat to the frame. Lift the rear of the seat upward then pull the seat toward the rear of the motorcycle to disengage it from the frame's catch tabs.
    • 2 Remove the pair of bolts that secure the front of the gas tank to the frame. Lift the fuel tank upward on the pivot at the base of the tank. Support the fuel tank against the frame using the tank's support rod.
    • 3 Remove the air box. Pull the three air hoses from the air box. Loosen the clamps on the air box's rubber boots with a screwdriver, and pull the air box out of the motorcycle.
    • 4 Pull the four coil packs out of the motor's cylinders. Clear any dirt and debris that has accumulated on top of the cylinders with compressed air, directing the air into the spark plug holes that the coil packs were installed in. Remove the spark plugs using a spark plug socket attached to a socket extension.
    • 5 Install new, properly gapped spark plugs into the motor with a spark plug socket. Tighten the socket until it is seated firmly against the motor. Reinstall the coil packs onto the spark plugs.
    • 6 Reinstall the air box, tightening the clamps on the rubber boots to secure the air box to the throttle bodies. Reconnect the trio of air hoses to the air box.
    • 7 Remove the tank support rod and lower the fuel tank onto the frame. Insert and tighten the fuel tank bolts with an Allen socket. Reinstall the seat, firmly tightening the mounting bolts with an Allen socket.

Instructions
    • 1 Lift the CBR onto its center stand. Unlock the seat latch with the ignition key and remove the seat. Remove the clip screws from the top portion of both seat rail covers, positioned below the fuel tank and the seat, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the seat rail covers away from the motorcycle's frame.
    • 2 Remove both bolts from the front of the fuel tank, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and prop it open using the support rod on the motorcycle's frame. Reach under the tank and unplug the fuel pump's wiring connector and all three hoses from the bottom of the tank. Take note of hoses' locations before removing them for reinstallation purposes. Pull the hairpin clip out from the support rod's base. Unscrew the pivot bolt from the base of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the fuel tank off of the motorcycle.

    • 3 Unscrew the air box's mounting bolt from the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket. Loosen the clamps securing the air box's flanges to the carburetors' inlets, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the air box towards the rear of the motorcycle to separate its flanges from the carburetors.
    • 4 Loosen the clamps securing the carburetors to the motor's intake manifolds, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the carburetors off of the motor and out through the left side of the motorcycle's frame. The carburetors will still be attached to the motorcycle by its throttle and choke cables. Loosen the choke and throttle cables' lock nuts, using a 10 mm wrench. Remove the cables.
    • 5 Hold the carburetors over a large container. Unscrew the drain screws on the side of each carburetor's float bowl, positioned at the very bottom of the carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. Allow the fuel trapped within the float bowl to drain completely, then tighten the drain screws.
    • 6 Flip the carburetor over, with the float bowls up, and place it on a clear work space. Unscrew the bolts from the float bowls, using a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the float bowls and their gaskets away from the carburetors.
    • 7 Unscrew the pilot jet from each carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. The pilot jet is placed to the left (with the carburetor facing you) of the main jet in the center of the carburetor. Screw a new pilot jet into place with a flat-head screwdriver.
    • 8 Reinstall the float bowls and their gaskets onto the carburetors. Tighten the float bowls' screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Reattach the throttle and clutch cables to the carburetors and tighten the cables' lock nuts with a 10 mm wrench. Slide the carburetors through the left side of the frame. Push the carburetors into the motor's intake manifolds. Tighten the intake manifolds' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 9 Pull the air box against the carburetors and push the air box's flanges over the carburetors' inlets. Tighten the flanges' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the air box's mounting bolt onto the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 10 Lay the fuel tank onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert the tank's pivot bolt through the hinge at the base of the tank. Screw the pivot bolt's nut into place, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and reattach the tank support rod to the motorcycle's frame. Insert the hairpin clip into the support rod's base. Prop the tank up on the support rod. Plug the wiring connector into the fuel pump and reconnect all three hoses onto the bottom of the tank. Screw both mounting bolts onto the front of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 11 Mount the seat rail covers onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert and tighten the covers' clip screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Lay the seat onto the seat rails, then press the rear of the seat down until the seat latch locks into place.

    Where is the air filter in 2000 suzuki marauder 800


    There are two of them. One for each carb. The rear one is just in front of ht battery box under the seat. It can be removed by removingn the 4 screws under the right side cover. The front one is under the tank. you must remove the tank then remove the air box from the frame it's the black box near the handle bars. once the air box is removed the filter comes out the same as the rear one.

    Where is the air filter on a 2007 c90 1500 suzuki boulevard?


    oh so funny you dont sound like an a hole you are one.The gas tank is a false tank you remove the instrument cluster and the 2 tank side and there you will find all of the electronics and fuel injection and even the air filter.Oh by the way the side cover has 2 screws and under that you will find an air regulator that pumps air into motor.I have an 07 and i love it.Even the fact that almost all the upper half is false.

    How do I expose the oil filter and the air filter on a 1979 Yamaha XS 400? I want to change both filters but I can't locate them.


    The oil filter is a paper element on the right side of the engine behind a little round cover. Should be somewhere on the lower crankcase. The air filter is in the air box which may be a little tricky to get to. You will need to remove the seat, and possibly the gas tank to remove the air box to get to it.

    How do I change air filter on 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner?


    • You have to remove the fuel tank.
    • Remove front seat. Use your key.
    • Remove rubber caps from the fuel shut off valves. Run screws in all the way to shut fuel off.
    • Remove speedo dash – 3 qty # 5mm Allen. Unplug all connectors including the small white one. Note order of plugs then un-snap from brackets on tank. Disconnect vent line.
    • To remove fuel tank. Remove decorative fins at the front of tank. 2 allens #4 on each side.
    • Remove two 10mm nuts at rear bracket holding tank.
    • Remove 2 qty 12mm bolts at the front bracket holding tank.
    • You can also swing the tank around and set it on the frame, or on a chair, without disconnecting the fuel lines. Remember to protect the frame and tank with a towel.
    • The air box is under the tank. Remove the top cover and replace the filter.
    • You can improve performance by removing some air restiction, Using a 1" hole saw drill 6 holes in air box cover to let it breath better.
    NOTE: At least 1 person has reported that the soft fuel lines can start leaking after using this method multiple times. If you smell gas, it may be time to replace the stock fuel lines with a higher grade automotive gas line (7/16").
