Why won't it run?

If the carburetor is ok, check the fuel pump. If it had bad gas in it, the tiny diaphragm gaskets within the fuel pump might be gummed up a little. You can check the pump volume if you remove the fuel line from your carb, aim it into a bucket or other receptical, and watch it pump. The gas should pulse smoothly with a little force. I'm not sure how to describe it, but it should be more than just a trickle, in other works. If your pump seems to be doing ok, and all of your fuel lines are clean and clear, the problem may be an intake manifold gasket leak, a carburetor mount gasket leak, or the intake manifold itself may be leaking. The intake manifold is two-piece, pressed aluminum with a sealant in between the two pieces. A leak at any of the three locations I mentioned would cause the problems you're experiencing. The fuel would of course reach the carb, but due to the any leaks, the vacuum needed would be decreased to the point that it wouldn't be enough to draw the fuel through the carb.

Hope this helps.

Gas in the motor

Sounds like you have a sticking float in your carb that is letting the fuel leak through the carb and into your motor. You need to remove the carb and clean and check float and drain the oil and replace with new.

Fuel leak from carburettor

No need to buy a new carb. Simply clean it and or replace the float needle valve. Check float level also after replacing the float needle valve. Most of the time the carb gums up and causes this to happen when sitting for a long time without being run. If you are going to store your bike for a while. Drain all the fuel from the carbs and gas tank before storing. You can also use a gas stabilizer in not setting up more than 3 months.

I put a new carb on my riding is hard to start.when it runs fuel pours out the top.also engine wont run with air cleaner installed on it.

The carb needle is not sealing properly on its seat, as this is a new carb it may be due to dirty fuel,clamp the fuel hose, remove the float bowl and clean out, check for any dirt particules, with the bowl off partly un clamp the fuel hose, fuel should flow freely and help to clear any dirt from the needle seat, re clamp the hose and refit the float bowl, if there was dirty fuel in the bowl you need to drain the tank and re fill with fresh clean fuel, if it still leaks you may need to replace the needle, or return the new carb to where you purchased it from.

Fuel over flows thru overflow tubes only when motor is running. motor off ignition on it stops.

Your gas tank petcock is diaphram operated.
there is a vacuum line coming off the intake, that goes straightb to the petcock.
when you turn the motor over a vacuum is created, pulling the petcock diaphram back and allowing fuel to flow to your carburetor. when you turn the motor off the vaumm is gone and the spring behind the diaphram pushes it closed and stops the fuel flow to the carbs.

Now the reason the carbs are overflowing is because the floats valves are not closing, in other words the floats are sticking.
Usually a good carb clean will cure the problem, especially for that year.
the older ones usually require new float valves/seats that are usually found in a good carb rebuild kit. You shouldn't need one.

If your really broke try tapping on the bowls of the carburetor lightly, while the engine is running, sometimes the vibration will vibrate a particle loose that may be holding open the float valve.
if it works then the fuel should stop overflowing while running.

if you know how to work on it, try this, with the engine off.
open the carburetor drain screws so that fuel will run out the carb. drain. flush out the carb.
get a container to catch the gasoline.
while fuel is flowing tap the carb bowls a few times then closed the drain screws.
clean up any spilled gasoline .
start your bike.see if they stop leaking and the floats are closing.
if it still leaks, you'll need the cleaning.

Happy Riding

Over flow tube is leaking gas on a new cmx250 rebel. Is the float stuck? How do I fix it?

If its the overflow, cleaning the sticky carb float could be simple fix.
Turn off fuel, drain the carb, with drain open spray carb cleaner into the bowl through the drain.(enough to rinse away varnish) then try it out, if all is good you are done. If it still runs gas out you will need to open the carb up to clean out the trash.

My 2001 yamaha raptor has a fuel leak from the bottom of the carburator can you help?

There are two possible reasons for this - firstly there may be a crack in the carb. bottom. On ly solution is to drain carb, remove bottom of carb and replace with new one (that is if they are available singly), the other problem might be that the gasket is leaking that seals the bottom to the carb body. Check the screws / bolts that hold this bottom part on and see if any are broken, missing, or just loose. If the anwer is no to these questions, the gasket might still have failed. Drain the carb after switching off the fuel tap or disconnecting the fuel tank, once drained remove the carb bottom and check the rubber gasket for swollen areas, breaks or even a small nick. Replace as necessary.

84 gsx750se starting problem!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

PRI setting allows fuel to flow from the tank to the carbs whether engine is running or not while ON requires that there is vacuum (engine running) for the fuel cut-off valve to allow fuel to flow (safety feature).

To determine if fuel is reaching the carbs, loosen the drain screw at the bottom of the carb's bowl. Fuel should leak out of the drain hose. For safety reasons, ensure no open flame and the fuel is collected in a suitable container. Another that could be tried is to turn off fuel from tank, temporarily remove the drain hoses from each of the carbs and spray the inside of the bowl through the drain hose nipple using carb cleaner. It would be easier to use the narrow tubelike nozzle that comes with the carb cleaner.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Gas leak

so you have a hole in your tank somewhere. or leaky fuel **** gasket. firstly you need to find the leak. or is your gas just flowing right thru your carbs and out the overflow? shut off fuel to eliminate carbs. if it stops leaking then its probably gummed up carb floats. use Berrymans B12 fuel additive this will work into the carb and hopefully break down the gum. or strip and clean them by hand with a good spray carb cleaner. or remove air cleaner and spray directly into carb and let sit for a few days.
if it's a gas tank leak then you will have to get it lined, (liquid sealer) so long as the hole is not too big. if it is then drain and dry the tank, get it welded professionally or patch it with a filler or fiberglass and then get it sealed, i used my local radiator repair shop to het mine done.
