If the bike has been sitting for that amount of time your cabs will need to be removed and cleaned. After fuel evaporates it leaves a coating that blocks up passageway in the carbs and prevents the flow of fuel into the engine.

Drain the carb floats and clean with Seafoam. Gas breaks down after about 6 months and the ethanol in the gas coats the carb.

Cant start bike after standing for 6 weeks even with new battery


Check to see if you're getting a strong blue spark at the plugs. If the spark is there, ensure you have good fuel in the tank and fuel flows from the petcock when you open it. If your fuel is good and flowing, you could try using a spray bottle to spray a little gas into the throat of the carburetor. If the bike fires after spraying the gas into the carburetor, there's a good chance your floats may have stuck in the up position. You will need to at least take the float bowls off and clean the floats and needles.

My car is not starting anymore the plugs keep getting soak with gasoline does anybody know why?


The fuel soaked plugs are what's called "flooding". You need to troubleshoot the ignition system, my guess is that you're not getting spark to fire the cylinders. Was this a gradual thing or did it just fail one day?

Hi, Cgallops108 and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

Leaking fuel from carberator overboard drain


the float is stuck in the open position, this is common after sitting for a period of time. You will have to remove the carb and clean it out.

06 m50 sat for approx 6 months charged the battery won't start.


from your description, i would sugest you make sure fuel is getting to the injector unit, remove the fuel supply hose.if you have spark at the plugs and fuel getting to the injectors you have isolated the problem. i would also drain the old fuel when you take the hose off and fill the tank with high grade fuel. bikes dont like old gas.

Theres fuel starvation, the carbs are not getting required fuel in other words the float chambers doesnt get the correct amount of fuel .
Check the fuel flow from the petcock to the carburators.
Check the float pin and adjust accordingly to get the right level inthe float chamber of each carburator.
Hope this helps!

That tube would be the overflow tube. Your carb float is sticking open and allowing fuel to flow in constantly. You need to take carb apart, clean needle valve, and inspect or replace carb float.
