1985 for ltd fuel pump keeps running

For the water pump, that means the water pump needs replaced-the seal is shot when it drips out the "weep hole". The hole is there to let you know the inner seal is gone.

XJ900 1983 tank removed and there are 4 hoses to connect. Where?

I could not find a parts diagram for a 93 XJ900 but I found one for a 750. All I could see was 2 hoses going to the fuel petcock. Not sure if the petcock is vacuum controlled, but the second hose might go to one of intake manifolds. This feature stops fuel from flowing when the engine is off. On California bikes it may also have a hose going to some charcoal canister(s) for capturing fuel vapor. On some tank designs their is also a hose that allows excess fuel at the filler cap to spill to the ground instead of spilling all over your tank.

Yamaha xj900 back firing through carbs can you please help from brian

could have an air leak in the carb boots or bad air fuel mixture. check the spark plugs, if they're black system is too rich. if they're white, they're lean. either have an air leak going to the cars or just need adjusting. also inspect your air filter.

Gas gage dont work on my 1985 nissan 300zx

check the fuse and relay switch for the instrument cluster,which includes the fuel gauge. if they are okay,and no check engine light comes on,then the float in the gas tank,which gives you your reading,is stuck and needs replaced.

1985 Yamaha XJ700 Maxim won't work

All engines need the same three to four things to work correctly..
Compression, Fuel, Spark, (timing).... But, usually those bikes, have fuel issues. The fuel tank spigot has a vacuum controlled valve which when the engine is cranked, suction is applied and fuel then can flow. Second,, the needle and float in the carb tend to get gummed up along with the main and idle jet... You need to make sure the carb is maticulously clean, Using carb cleaner, and tag wire,, or a piece of fine wire ( be careful not to enlarge the tiny holes). Keep refering to the 3-4 list fuel, compression, Spark,,,timing.....
Good luck...!!

Possibly a clogged catalytic converter. Even if it is clogged it can be irratic. I had a muffler shop check it by cutting a hole before it with a torch, changed it out and i was good to go.
