Welcome to Fixya

If you remove any adjusting screws or jets, write down the number of turns it takes for removal and than put each one back the same number of turns. Before removing the carbs, drain them (assuming there is anything in them). Get a spray can of Berrymans carb cleaner (or another brand), and fill the float bowls full of cleaner by disconnecting the fuel lines and spraying into each fuel line until the level in the line is reaching the top of the float bowl. Wait for a couple of days while the cleaner softens the dried varnish residue in the carbs. Now remove the carbs as a set then dis-assemble and clean with a couple more cans of cleaner.

Below is a diagram of your carb. The same diagram with the entire carb assembly AND your entire bike can be found at Babbitt's. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

2000 marauder leaks gas out of overflow tube on the carberater only when starting or running


the floats in the bottom of the carb need adjusting the are to low

floatlevel3.jpg


When setting the float level be aware that the spring loaded bumper on the fuel inlet needle valve may have a tendency to compress under the weight of the float assembly which will skew your measurement. Before you obtain your measurement you'll need to make sure that the float assembly tang just barely makes contact with the spring-loaded bumper. Sometimes it is easier to hold the carb body at a 45-degree angle to avoid compressing the spring in the fuel inlet needle.

If you find that your measurement does not match your float level spec then you can carefully bend the float assembly tang to achieve your desired measurement. Be sure to recheck your work, and if you feel confident that your float level is spot on then you can reinstall your carb and get back to riding.

Its not a problem, I need to know if there is another way to set/measure the float hights without the need of the speacial Kawasaki tool for doing so? I understand the hieght should be set at around 15mm...


Here is the fallback method that has always worked for me: have the float arms (that part of the float which attaches the floats to the hinge) parallel to the float bowl gasket surface just as the float valve contacts the float - without depressing the spring loaded tip on the valve. Frankly, I have used float gauge maybe once in my life - this method is much faster and easier.

How do I rebuild the petcock for a 1985 suzuki gs700es?


You should be able to get a gasket kick from either a dealer or out of Dennis Kirk, Parts Unlimited, Tucker Rocky. It should only be about 4 screws to remove the insides. Just be careful because there is a spring in there.

Float setting for BS34ss carb


I have a set my float to 22.0 +- 1.0 for a Mikuni carb.
To set floats, drain the carbs, pull the carbs from the bike invert and remove float bowl.
With the carb inverted, take off the float bowls. Take off the gasket. Use a vernier caliper or an accurate device to measure from the carb body to the top of the float block.
Here is are a couple of good sites about carbs and such.

Took hose off the petcock and turned the bike over but no gas


I would take the vacuum and main fuel lines off and just, pardon the expression, **** on it to see if the fuel will start to come out from the petcock outlet. Also check the position of the valve to make sure it is in the "on" or "res" and not "off". Duh. It happens.
If that doesn't get it then the petcock needs a rebuild. If the fuel line or vacuum line is clogged or the carb floats are stuck closed you will also get no fuel. Check it all out with patience and curiosity. It's an easy fix.
