2002 Shadow: bike leaks gas from the carb, and runs with no gas going to it


Carbs have a reservoir in the base that will last for a few miles before it is drained. So turning the fuel off doesn't starve the engine immediately. This is normal.

Hi, I've got a bmw r100 rt 1981. At high speed 105 mph, after about 1/4 of a mile the engine cuts out and when speed drops to about 80 mph it starts to pick up again. The bike starts and runs fine although...


sounds like you need to look at the carbs there not getting a good fule flow to them,,,,check this first,,you need to adjust both carbs to open the same amount and this can only be done on the throtle cable's at the carb,,,if your bike feels a bit lower on power than your palls,,do a compreshion test on both bikes,,if his has more compreshion than yours thats why he can wip you on hills!

Hope someone can help.. bought a used think 07/08


I am not certain exactly what bike you have so consider the diagram below as generic. Chances are the float needle is sticking open a bit. A bit of trash may be stopping it from closing fully. The overflow hose is where any "excess" gas is dumped. This hose vents to the open air. Be sure to turn off the gas valve (petcock) at the bottom side of the tank when bike is not in use. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

I need tuning specs for my 1982 suzuki gs 750.


You need to fix the fueling first - without fuel it won't run!
Your other problem sounds like an air leak - either the manifold or the carb. Check by spraying WD-40 or CRC at the manifold and carb join while the bike is running - if the revs change (either up or down) you have a leak.

2004 GMC sierra 5.3 eng 1500 transmission shutter 40-55 mph


I too have that problem. I own a 2005 GMC Yukon. Shutters between 40 + 55 mph. I thought for sure the stumble I felt was a plug or coil pack because it only does it under a load. With A/C on the whole truck shakes! But it wasnt the plugs or coil packs. Answers anyone?

Engine skips, won't go over 55 mph. Works fine below that.


Hi ..... Go through the above list, pay particular attention to fuel delivery ie blocked breather in tank, any filter fitted to tap or change in line filter if fitted. Easy to check, take off fuel delivery to carb (place container to catch fuel), start bike and fuel should come out a strong contant flow.
Let us know how you get on.
