I would check the float chamber/s for sticky valves.

Bike has not been rode for over a year finally got it to start easy, but while I had the air cover off I shut it down because gas mixed with oil was being pumped out the breather hose on rear cylinder


YEAR,MAKE,MODEL??
Plus,...if the bike has been sitting for a long time,it is possible to have water in the fuel tank. So i wouldnt rule out gas just yet. Most likely it is fuel mixing with oil,and the carbs are going to have to be taken off,cleaned,floats set,and synched. And of course,drain old fuel and replace with new fuel. It would also be a good time to change the plugs,and oil while your at it.

Leaking oil around air filter


Hi Anonymous, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck

i know if you don't have good air flow to the air breather, you will loose gas mileage...make sure you have a good clean air filter...this would be a good start for you...

93 Fatboy oil leaking from vent tube at air filter. oil level is good, not over filled, oil will cover the oil tank on a 100 mile trip


On your '93 model, the crankcase vent is down low on the engine behind the oil pump and it runs up to the air filter through a metal and rubber hose. I don't know how many miles you have on your engine but it you're getting any blow-by on the rings, this will increase the pressure in the crankcase. Most people simply re-route the crankcase breather underneath the bike and plug the hole on the backside of the air filter. Replace the metal line with a rubber hose and put a small filter in the end of the hose. Route the hose back behind the transmission and attach it to the transmission mounting plate just in front of the rear wheel.

This was the way the older Shovelheads were done from the factory for years until the EPA made them start running the crankcase vented air through the engine. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather" system and moved the crankcase vents to the heads. Still, the oil mist in the vented air builds up in the air cleaner on these models as well.

Good Luck
Steve

VTX 1300R 07 ran out of gas and won't start, put fuel in it.


Does your bike have a petcock?

If so you have to prime the fuel bowls with gas by opening the pet **** for a minute until the fuel bowls are full of fuel THEN you set your choke if you have a manual choke THEN start the bike.

Your fuel tank breather is blocked. As the fuel is sucked out of the tank a partial vacuum is built up and no more fuel can come out.
Check the breather holes in the filler cap or the breather pipe if it has one.

Fuel starvation most likely caused by plugged fuel filter. Best way to check/fix is to drain gas tank then remove on/off/res petcock assembly. Filter is removed with assembly and can be cleaned with carb cleaner, blown out with compressed air, and re-used. Do not get solvent or carb cleaner on any rubber parts as this will harden them. Re-assemble and start with fresh gas. Oil in breather is normal if not excessive and can be sign of clogged air filter or worn rings. Fix fuel and air filters and re-check. Good luck, Techjoel

SMELL OF GASE


sounds like your bike is running rich. Probably wouldn't hurt to have your carburetors adjusted and synchronized.

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.,,
