1995 yzf 600 , fuel issue, spits gas out carb1-2, and over fills with gas in carbs, is the yzf pumped or gravity filled with gas?

Carb. engines on bikes are usually gravity fed. Just follow the fuel line from the tank to see where it ids distributed to your carbs.
Sticky float valves and bad diaphragms will cause the carb to flood out. Ethanol gas could be the problem where it's eating away at the rubber parts. I suggest if you're not a bike mechanic, then get it to the shop where your carbs can be rebuilt using ethanol safe components and have them synchronized. Your bike will run better than it ever has.

Got a1996 yamaha yzf 600 and it starts but its not getting gas so it shuts off new carb all the way thru

Hi, Ktatejr86 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

It's a hard starting what shall i do. it won't start at all, every now & then we have to push it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially (and if have not been tried), a couple of checks of hard starting 1995 Suzuki GSX-R 600 :
  • fuel quantity and quality in each carb. A workaround is to loosen the drain screws one at a time and collect the flowing fuel through the drain hose. Compare the amount and state of the draining fuel. Verify that quantity is nearly identical with each carb and that their are no impurities, sand, rust or foreign / contaminants;
  • presence / absence of spark from each plug (all the plugs). Remove plugs from cylinder head and re-attach to their respective wires. Check for the presence and color of the arc/spark;
  • likewise upon sparkplug removal, check for the presence of unburned fuel on the plug tips. This is to determine if the carbs are delivering fuel and the combustion chamber is drawing fuel.
Postback results / updates on above tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have a 97 yzf 600. it had thefuel turn varnishshy. after draining ld fuel, and adding newfuel, the bike fires fine bu soon after begins overflowing thru the overflo . what shoul ido ?

The varnish is causing the float inside the carb to stick in an open position. The carbs will need to be removed and cleaned with carb cleaner. Tough varnish can be quickly removed using denatured alcohol.

I have a 2002 yzf600r and it has been sitting in a garage for about a year with old gas and i drained it and put new gas with it along with some fuel injector cleaner and when i get the bike warmed up and...

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Is there any water in the gas? Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Install new stock NGK spark plugs and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH CARB > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire
carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

1995 yamaha 600 wont start

Is the kill switch on? Good battery? The side stand should be up. Is the choke on? Is the bike in neutral? Have you checked the fuses? Headlight should be off.

Get new stock plugs from the dealer. Check to see that the choke will open and close properly. Drain the carbs then remove and clean the fuel valve water trap bowl. Check the wiring harness for unplugged wires and loose connections. When was the last time you installed an air filter?
