Body cover!...believe me... a ride around without mine on... gives me that rat look i like and it makes it a lot easier to maintain...especially if you're out on long rides and need to access or work on the bike..your preference though! Whats wrong with the bike? Seafoam might clear it up. get it from autzone $10, pour 1/3 can into two gallons gas and get on it,and you wouldnt have to do anything but ride it for 10 miles or so till problem goes away...maybe. My moto is dont mess with the carbs unless you absolutely have too! they might just be vanished all up.

    suzuki gsx600f 1991 model. was stood, now has fresh petrol,plugs but still spluttering after 25 miles running. revs ok in neutral but soon as you get moving and demand high revs it sputters like mad with an occaisonal backfire. ive used a multi meter on it running and its only returning 11volts instead of 14. HELP.

    you need a new battery, anything below 12.3 means its on it way out...try a trickle charge first for at least 8 hours, ride the bike for about 20 miles at at least at 5k to 6k revs,on long open roads if possible, if the battery voltage has dropped after this long ride its probably a bad battery. The way you can test if the regulator if it is charging the battery,,,hook up the voltmeter and rev the bike at idle to 4k and you'll see it rise quickly to around 14v then it will rectify down to about 13.3v. this means that this circuit is working and that your battery is not holding a charge due to a week cell, after you trickle charge the bike it will seem to perform well for a while and you may even think its fixed! but when left to set for a long period of time the voltage will start to slowly drop.
    most motorcycle batteries are only good for a max of three years! if its a cheap one..two years!

I have a 2001 Suzuki GSX600f Katana that's having a problem when the throttle is applied, it seems to climb slowly and come down slowly. I know one carb has a vacuum leak is that the source of the problem?

Hi, Riley "ABSOLUTELY" and the usual suspects are:
1. Extremely lean fuel mixture.
2. Dirt, rust, water, or ethanol sludge in the fuel system.
3. Sticky throttle cables.
4. Multiple carburetors not in synchronization.
5. TPS sensor out of adjustment or faulty.
6. Wrong spark plugs for the type of service.
7. Throttle bodies not in synchronization (FI)
8. Faulty O2 sensor.
9. Clogged, stuck, or faulty IAC valve.
10. Aftermarket components not compatible with ECM.

Where can i buy a carb float bowl for my 2006 Suzuki GSX600F Kanata???

unless the bowl itself is damaged speak to suzuki as they may have new old stock to sell cheap to give them garage space, otherwise there is other mods to make it run slightly easier, like maybe a bandit 600 carb bank?

if its the carb body itself, sounds screwed to me (no pun intended) check the threads and see.

Replace fuel line in husqvarna 141 chain saw

The fuel line on the 141 is very small and wasn't really meant to be replaced for some reason, as it is a pinch fit. Buy the smallest fuel line you can, usually 1/8th OD inch fuel line. Remove the air-filter and the carburetor. You will need to drill out the
current hole a little bit, so go slowly. As soon as the new fuel line will fit _tightly_ insert the line. You will have to remove the hand-bar and the
anti-vibration bolts to separate the motor mount portion from the gas tank which is part of the hand grip.

Apply some gasoline proof gasket sealant to the space between the gap, else you will have a gas leak from the tank sooner or later.

Reassemble the grip and motor sections back together and let the sealant dry for a day or so. Put the carb and air filter back on and attach the fuel line to the carb and the other end to the fuel filter in the gas tank.

Hi, Timothy_towd "ABSOLUTELY" you need to go through all 4 carbs set the proper float height and then have them synced for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Where is the fuel filter located on a delta88 oldsmobile 1985?

As I recall, that was around the time GM was making the change from carburetors to throttle body injection . There should be a very small filter inside the carb, just behind where the fuel line connects to it . Disconnect the battery, disconnect fuel line from carb and reach in with small needle nose pliers to remove. Also there was a "sock" filter located in the gas tank itself but, I'd check the carb filter 1st.
If it's throttle body, I think there was only the filter in the tank but, I'm not 100% sure on that. Your local GM dealer should have references available to let you know for sure.

2005 suzuki wont stay running, i had just bought it and it will start but putt around but cant reach high rpms. does the carburetor need to be cleaned?

Remove the carb from the bike.
Completely disassemble the carb
Soak all jets, needles, springs, screws and carb body in a carb solution overnight.
Do Not soak any o-rings or the float. Clean the float with a brush, and replace the o-rings if they are flat.
Rinse with water and then blow everything out with compressed air.
Make sure you can see through the jets and the small holes on the side of the jets.
Make sure you blow through every hole in the carb body.
Reassemble carb, mount on bike.
It will run like new again.

NOTE: When removing the air/fuel mixture screw, turn it in(clockwise) until it stops and STOP turning, Do Not try to tighten any further.
Count the number of turns it took to stop. Write it down so you dont forget overnight. Remove it for cleaning.
When you reassemble the carb, turn the air/fuel mixture screw in until it stops.
Now turn it out(counterclockwise) the number of turn you counted.
If your not sure turn it out 2 turns.

2003 suzuki dr200se will not idle runs great if you keep it above idle. Removed carb, took it apart sprayed jets with carb cleaner. Reassembled and now will not fire. No gas??? Checked everything I can...

If the machine wont idle but the jets are clear, it is possible that you overlooked the carburetor body. If the passageways in the carburetor body are blocked , the machine still will not idle until you blow the body clear. Either there is still dirt in the carburetor, or the intake manifold is cracked or separated in a way that is causing too much air to get into the cylinder. perhaps a closer inspection is in order.

The fuel lines rotted which line goes where

Rotten fuel line debris may have also made it into your carburetor, where there is a very fine mesh screen to catch it. To check, remove the cover on the carb that has the primer bulb on it or the one that doesn't have a hole in the cover.
This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used, choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.
