Question about kawasaki Z 750 Motorcycles
My Kawasaki zx750 1994 starts when she feels like starting it starts but when you turn it off it won't start back on I smell gas and sometimes it starts leaking gas. And I let it seat for a day and it turns back on. It just had it's carb cleaned up after a long winter without any attention.
Your carb is still malfunctioning at the float valve and is flooding your engine.
With the carb off, remove the bowl and then the float. Inspect the tip of the float needle for a defined ring from wear and the float needle seat for burrs or defects. If you find any of this, replace the deffective part.
If not, it may just still be a little dirty. Use a q-tip soaked in carb cleaner to clean the float needle seat. This seat and the float needle have to be perfect to work.
Next make sure the float doesn't have any gas inside it. If it does, it's leaking and causing your problem.
If not, your float height may be a little off. If the float is all plastic, you can't adjust it and it shouldn't be the culprit. If it has a metal tab, this cam be flexed a little to adjust the float height, much like the float in the back of a toilet. Try barely tweaking the metal tab in the direction of the float needle and seat. This will lower the fuel level inside the carb. Only do float mods as a last resort.
