You will have to remove the seat and the tank to get the carbs. You will also may have to remove the air box. The name brand of the carbs will be on the side and sometimes on the top cover of the slide diaphragm. You will also need to know the size of them. There will be a number along the body of the carbs just above the float bowls. You really don't need to get new ones just have to rebuild or clean and adjust them. Also it would be cheaper than buying new ones.

WHY DOES TRUCK HESITATE WHEN GIVING GAS AND STALLS


Is it carburator? I had the same problem with mine 85 ford ranger. I had the carburator rebuilt but it still took the shop 3 tries before they got the adjustment right. It's either your fuel pump (most likely). Inside the carburator, there's a float that adjust to much gas is needed and that could also be the problem. The float might be defective so it stalls when you step on the gas. I suggest replacing the fuel filter as well if you gonna work on it
Other unlikely culprit could be your ignition wires/coil/spark plugs. Check to see when they were last replaced.....
good luck

When turn on petrol and kick bike, petrol is running out of overflow pipe on carb and bike wont start, and bike sounds flooded.


You have a sticking float in the carburator, due to old gas, or dirt. The float moves a needle that turns on and off the flow of fuel into the carb bowl.

Hello,
You may have broken gasket /seal in your carburator,or stuck floating valve. Dismantling your carburator to justify which parts is in problem. You need a good screwdriver to dismantle your carburator.

Carburators


you have got sticky floats or float velves that are sticking shut/open,,, turn on the fuel and tap the top of the carbs one at a time this may jolt the floats back and shut the needle velves if this dont work the only way to fix it is to strip the cards and clean the cards up if you park the bike up for any time again drain all the float boles first by undoing the small screw under the carb float boles or run the carbs dry by turning off the fule tap and keep the motor running till it stops by its self

Petrol in my engine oil chamber why


If you're getting fuel into your oil, your fuel delivery system is leaking. This problem is most common on carburated engines. The needle valve is not seating properly and when the engine is stopped, the carburator is flooding and the fuel is flowing into the engine. Once it gets into intake manifold, it seeps past the valves into the cylinder. Then it seeps past the rings into the crankcase contaminating the oil. If your bike is fuel injected, the same thing is happening because the fuel is pressurized by the fuel pump and your injector(s) are leaking fuel into the engine.

On a carb equipped machine there us usually a petcock to turn the fuel off with. You can either turn the petcock off each time you turn the bike off (a good practice) or you can have the carburator repaired. Some late model bikes have a vacuum operated petcock that automatically turns the fuel off when the engine is stopped. If your bike is equipped with this type of petcock, the petcock could be defective or is positioned in the "prime" position. If you go into the carbs (I think your bike has two carbs), replace the needle and check the float height setting according to the manual in both carbs.

If your bike is fuel injected, these devices are usually not easily servicable, simply replaced if they malfunction. You could try adding a bit of fuel injector cleaner designed for automotive use to your fuel. It may clean the injector (or needle in the case of carburators) and solve the problem. Otherwise, I'd probably take the bike to a repair shop.

Good Luck!

Engine gets off sudeenly while riding


There seems to be fuel stravation problem to the carburator....
Remove the carburator and thn remove the float bowl and clean the float pin and its passage...there could be some kind of dirt in the pathway and thus the obstruction of the fuel flow into the float chamber.
If your bike doesn't have an 'in-line' filter ....install one! this will help catch the dirt before it finds its way into the float chamber.

Hope this helps!

Fuel overflow from carburator


you have a stuck float in the carb.  However, the fuel valve should have stopped the fuel flow.  so you need to rebuild the carbs and replace the fuel valve.
