Could be the carb float has come off and not letting any gas into the carb bowl? Could be a plug in the gas line or the inlet in the gas tank which usually has a screen on it is filthy and needs to be cleaned. I\'d throw in a clear inline gas filter so you can actually see gas going through the line. They\'re cheap enough and the filer will help keep any crap from getting through to the carb. If your jets in the carb are plugged then you won\'t get getting any gas through the carb. So you need to see where the issue is. Is it a gas tank fuel plug, or a carb fuel plug. Make sure the gas is getting to the carb, then make sure the carb isn\'t plugged which will require you taking the carb off and looking through the gets which can be unscrewed. Jets are inside the carb and if you take the bowl off the carb you will usually find them. Take the get out, look through it into a ligh and if you can see light through the jet, it\'s ok. If you can\'t see light, then the jet is probably plugged. I use an old guitar string to slide through the jet hole to unplug it which works pretty well because they are small enough to do so. Clean the carb with carb cleaner and make sure it\'s good and clean before reassembling.
did u clean main jet in carb with a tip cleaner running it all the way threw the jet? if so check the needel and set.hook fuel line up and with a drain pan under the carb turn gas on make sure gas is flowing threw the set. if not remove and clean.
Most likely your slow (idle, pilot, whichever name you prefer) jets are plugged up in your carburetors. If the bike was stored improperly, or old/dirty gas was in the tank, these jets get plugged up pretty easily. One if not all are probably affected. The slow jet is where your bike pulls gas while it has a closed throttle position. Its the smallest jet in the carbs. When you twist the throttle, the needle (blocking the main jet from being used) opens up and allows gas to pass it and up into the vacuum of your carb and into your engine. If the idle jets are plugged you will usually notice that if you give the bike throttle it will run great in the higher RPM (3000+) but will die and be "glitchy" or boggy when going from no throttle to open throttle. You can try to cheat a carb clean by getting some carb cleaner and spraying that down the carbs, and using seafoam or equivalent to get those jets clean, but its always a better bet to see whats going on inside and clean those things so you get your throttle response back. Goodluck.
Engine is flooding, need to pull the carbs and clean them. Carbs need to be taken apart, the jets removed and cleaned out. The low speed jets, the small ones, have a very small hole in them use a single bristle out of a wire brush to clean it out, do not make the holes any bigger. once you get the jets cleaned out, put em back in, reassemble the carbs, reinstall and have a good ride.
Bad gas can cause the engine to surge, but also the carb bowl and jets need cleaning. I usually drain the gas, remove the bowl, wipe inside the bowl , and then use a carb cleaner to spray the float and jet/s. The float may be hanging up. It would be best just remove the gas and clean the bowl area and float/jets. I wouldn't think replacing the carb. is the problem.
sounds like a fuel problem in the gas tank or carb. If bad gas or debris gets into the carb fuel bowl, this will fowl up or clog the jets after you start to run your engine. you need to remove your carb and clean the fuel bowl and jets. use a jet carb cleaner to do this. without knowing what type of engine, make sure all ur jets are clean. use a fine wire to insure they are clean and put te carb back together. also check and clean the fuel valve area of the carb, the fuel line, and the fuel tank. never use last years gas and always run your equipment out of gas before you store it for the winter.
how long did you let it sit for with gas in the carbs, you may have clogged up your jets. after awile gas will break down and turn into varnish, if your bike trys to push the varnish through the system it will clog the jets. try to take off your seat then remove your plastic over the gas tank. remove the gas tank and you will see four bowls *silver ones right next to where the gas tank is on the carbs*. your bowls are in sets of two. there are drain screws on the bowls to remove the gas inside. remove the 16 screws holding the bowl onto the carb. *4 on each* inside you will see your floats and jets. carefully loosen the jets with a screw driver then finish unscrewing them by hand, they are brass and very soft. you should be able to hold up the jets to the light and see a small pin hole. if not get some carb cleaner and give them a squirt and blow them out. do not try to use anything to clean them out, they are very very sensitive and one knick will change the jet. after that i would spray some carb cleaner up the jet holes and try to clean them out also. if you have a compressor it would be wise to use that to blow out the gunk from the jet holes as well. after you run threw all 8 jets put them back together and see how it goes, if nothing you may have to check the jets again and if clogged again your carbs are gunked up and will need to be cleaned
