Question about kawasaki Ninja 500 R Motorcycles
How to hook up the hose to petcock can't get gas from the tank to carburetors. @
SOURCE: gas runs out of from carburetor
if you suspect the float is stuck, grab a screwdriver and tap the carb float bowl with the handle. you should be able to see this from the bottom of the tank. hopefully this will unstick the float.
if it doesn't, then it will require removing the carb and taking the float bowl off and seeing if the float is adjusted properly.

SOURCE: Leaking Fuel tap (petcock)
This sounds like a vacuum lock pet ****. 3 position? run, prime,and reserve? If you have it on pri, You will fuel running or not. If set on run, then you will only pass fuel when engine is running, and of course res. when tank is used up. Is this leak at the valve? or from the tank or internally flowing? Tis should also be a gravity feed fuel system, please correct me if I'm wrong. good luck. Long fuel lines are not prefered on gravity feed systems.

yes, the breather line hooks to the petcock on the line facing the back, the fuel line hooks to the larger one. the line from the breather is actually a vacume line that turns on the fuel, without it you will not get fuel out of the petcock unless it is in the prime position.

On the one that has two hoses does it still have an "Off" position? Usually petcocks that have two hoses, one goes to the carb vacuum, and the other is for a fuel supply for the engine. That way it only allows fuel to flow when the engine is running. I have found these to be a poor design and can often leak and allow fuel to run into the engine if your carbs are acting up. If the replacement only has one hose, then it will work fine, just be sure to cap off the vacuum port on the carb.

Probably just an overflow hose from the carb. If the float gets stuck or gummed up, too much fuel will go in the carb and come out, the hose routes the excess fuel away from the hot cylinders, etc and to the ground.
