Vt 1100 shadow fuel tank vent tube was dumping gas since then the bike is acting like its running out of gas any causes?


Carbs are probably clogged. Has the bike sat for a long time? ~$75 per carb retail.

I justgot a 95 kawasaki 500. i just cleaned the carbs and put in a fuel filter. i put bike back together. there is a black tube running out the back of the bike starting from after the carberatuor an


Its probably the crankcase vent. The carbs have more than likely been pouring gas inside the motor,to the point of overfilling the crankcase oil with gasoline. Drain the oil and change the filter. And while youre draing it,..look inside the carb bodies,and see if gas is still running into the cylinders.If it is,then your float height is not set correctly..(too high)...or the needle valves need to be replaced. (valve that hooks onto the floats).

I put gas in my bike. Didn't even start it and it was leaking gas out the overflow tube. Is this a problem?


The float may be stuck in the open position...you can try tapping on the bottom of the carb to see if it stops...otherwise you may need to remove the carb bowl to see what is sticking

I've got a 2005 650 that is pouring gas out of a tube under the carb. It only pours when its started and running. Won't idle


Your carb has a hung float or needle and seat issues.

You have to take the carb off the bike and consider replacing the float and/or needle and seat.

You might get by just raising the float level. But this is only a stopgap maneuver. Buy a new float!

You bike is flooding so it wont run right until this is fixed.

The reason its only flooding while its running is because your bike has an automatic gas tank valve that opens when the bike starts and makes vacuum that opens the valve. It is saving you from the bike totally filling up with fuel!

That tube would be the overflow tube. Your carb float is sticking open and allowing fuel to flow in constantly. You need to take carb apart, clean needle valve, and inspect or replace carb float.

A lot of gas coming out of the carb. overflow tube, eng on or off


the float pin is stuck or has some dirt in it. try tapping the side of the float bowl(s) with the handle of a screwdriver... not hard enough to break it. if that doesn't work you will likely have to take the carb apart and clean it.

Gas leak


sounds like you have either a stuck float or a needle and seat leaking your carb is overflowing and coming out overflow tube. could try adding a carb cleaner additive to your fuel but chances are you will have remove and clean carbs or replace needle and seat jim

Fuel leak


Wait... fuel is pouring out of the crankcase breather? Are you sure it's not the carb overflow tube? The crankcase breather should be going back into your airbox or through some kind of filter. If gas is coming out of there DO NOT START YOUR BIKE. It means that gas has gone from the tank through the carbs into the cylinder and is now in your oil. Thinned out oil is the devil for bikes. Sounds like you'll need to clean the carbs and set the float bowl height and maybe rebuild the petcock. Check to see if any fuel is coming out when the petcock is turned off. If it only has on pri and reserve then check for gas in the vaccum tube.,,

Bike died


I was on my way home from work when I stopped at the stop light and when I went to take off my bike just died. It started right back up but as I gave it gas it would die again. I managed to roll it out of traffic into a parking space. I tried the choke the fuel valve, but nothing worked. It would idle, but as soon as I would give it some gas it would just sputter and die. I got a ride to my house where I got my truck and came back to my bike. I started it up and soon as I gave it some gas, it died. I started it up again and gave it some gas and then it started working just fine. I revved it a few times, but it wouldn't die again. I drove it home and didn't have a problem. It seems to be running fine now. What the heck?? It only has 693 miles on it. It has almost a full tank of gas. What could possibly be wrong?,It's fuel or air related. If your bike didn't have any issues at all, no minor symptoms until it fell on its face like that, I'd wager something worked its way loose. Could be something is preventing fuel from reaching the carbs or something rattled loose in your airbox or carb boots. If something blocked off your air filter it would show those symptoms, or if you suddenly had a huge vacuum leak from a carb boot coming undone. I'd start by verifying you have fuel in the carbs by attaching a length of tubing and opening the drain screw at the bottom. Fuel comes out of your carbs, look elsewhere. No fuel, find out why it's not getting to your carbs. Perhaps your fuel line kinked.,,,
