Question about 1987 kawasaki ZL 1000 A1 Eliminator
Hi,this problem is normally caused by the float needles inside the carb bowls not sealing properly,which will allow the carb bowls to keep filling untill they overflow,once they have overflowed the petrol will make its way through the inlet manifold past the valves in the head and then down to the pistons,past the piston rings and into the sump,it is not difficult to replace the needle valve seats once you have the carbs off,all you do is take the carb bowls off (4 screws),pop out the pin that holds the floats in,the needle valve is connected to the floats normally by a little spring type clip,unscrew the needle valve seat(brass) and remove,screw in the new one..job done..replace the needle valve as well..hope this helps...cheers
