I have a 99 kawasaki Vulcan 1500 classic when I try to start it it will idle for a few until it floods the back plugs and it spits gas in air filter can some one tell me how to fix my problem


Hi, Brandon 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.

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

1500 kawasaki vulcan leaking gas into cylinder


could be 2 problems, the carb float needle should stop the flow before it floods into cylnder, so it may need a clean or replace. If it floods when engine not running, the fuel tap may need cleaning or a repair kit, as it should stop the flow when the engine stops

95 Bonneville won't start when hot


Yes I know, but If you hold the accelerator pedal to the floor on a fuel injected car, the Throttle position sensor will tell the computer to enter clear flood mode. Then the computer will shut off the fuel injectors while you have the pedal to the floor. If it is flooded, you should be able to get it started in clear flood.

96 Astro Fuel Pump Question?? no start/Flooding


With the upper plenum removed and spark disabled turn on the key and allow the fuel pump to prime while watching the fuel lines from the back of the intake to the injector. I suspect you lines are leaking. Have seen this before. ALOT.
