Check in line filter, if none, pull the line off at the carb, if no gas flow, blow into the tank to remove the restriction. If the tank is full of rust, remove it, dump out the gas, fill the tank with sharp rock pebbles the size of peas to a 1/8 inch of the bottom. Shake the pebbles around in the tank till all the rust is loosened. Dump out the pebbles, wash the tank throughly with water and pour out on a white rag until all rust and pebbles are not visable on the dump rag. Dry the tank in the sun, then reassemble. Remove bowl on carb to acertain fuel flow to the bowl, and it is also clean. If motor still runs inconsistantly, drop the center nut again that holds the needle jet, this should clear the problem.

There are 2 gas lines from the carburater going to the gas tank does it matter which one goes where?

The larger one is the pressure line to the fuel injection, the smaller one is the returned fuel line

How do i connect gas Lines from tank to carburater

Your bike has been one of the most difficult models to look up. I have only been able to find 1 reference image to help you, but I think you have gotten this far already. There may be 4 lines, but only 2 of them should connect to the fuel tank. The only advice I can give you is, they all have different diameter hoses, so you can't put a little hose on a big connection. Same is true reversed. I hope this helps.

When you say cleaned carburater did you take it all apart and spray carb cleaner through all the ports, it only takes the smallest debris for it to not run properly

What steps do I take to get a Yamaha EF1000 gas powered electric generator going again after it has been sitting around for years with gas in the tank? How do I drain the gas from the tank and carburater?...

You can disconnect the fuel line from the carb and drain the gas. It would be even better to then remove the fuel tank. If this is the generator with the large plastic tank, quite often the rubber gromet in the bottom of the tank with shout off vavle in it will deteriorate into a black gooey mess, and leak. If so that will have to be replaced. Clean inside of tank with fresh gasoline. Remove bowl from carburator and clean throughly. If you know how to work on engines, remove the carburator and clean throughly, notice how all springs and linkage were connected before removeal. Be sure all passage ways in carb are clean. Always use sta-bill in your gas.

Yes and yes, first I would check fuses and relays for the pump and the injectors also you can jump the relay socket and see if the pump energizes. one other tip is to hit the bottom of the tank, sometimes the vibration will knock the pump from its stuck state. it still needs replaced

IF you have a battery get a new one ; put in new gas ; super; dsid you ajest any screws on carb. You tight need to run a prime tank right to your carb to prime it; and then hook your tank backup new gas lines to your carb. Now break out with the WD40 to spray all switches for rust.
