Question about Suzuki Motorcycles

Open Question

Thanks by the way, for your informative response to my previous query. Now, I'm not sure if my petcock is connected properly. I have a 1982 Suzuki GS 550.

The fatter, rearward facing hose (gas line) I've got hooked to the rear of the carburetor between the #1 and #2 cylinders. The smaller hose (vacuum line)is hooked to the front of the two cylinders, and the third hose, facing forward, I assume is an overflow, and it's just dangling somewhere. Can you tell me if this is correct?

Scooter not getting gas to carb.


Silly question, but are you sure you are getting gas through the line? Could the line from the tank be plugged? How about the tank port?
Is there a fuel shutoff?

Replace fuel line in husqvarna 141 chain saw


The fuel line on the 141 is very small and wasn't really meant to be replaced for some reason, as it is a pinch fit. Buy the smallest fuel line you can, usually 1/8th OD inch fuel line. Remove the air-filter and the carburetor. You will need to drill out the
current hole a little bit, so go slowly. As soon as the new fuel line will fit _tightly_ insert the line. You will have to remove the hand-bar and the
anti-vibration bolts to separate the motor mount portion from the gas tank which is part of the hand grip.

Apply some gasoline proof gasket sealant to the space between the gap, else you will have a gas leak from the tank sooner or later.

Reassemble the grip and motor sections back together and let the sealant dry for a day or so. Put the carb and air filter back on and attach the fuel line to the carb and the other end to the fuel filter in the gas tank.

HOW I CAN CONECTION WITH GAS CYLENDER ( 2 MACHINE )


Are you trying to hook up a gas fryer to a gas cylinder tank? If so, you hook them up with a hose. If you have natural gas, you need a gas line, and if you have a fryer on casters, you would need a quick disconnect hose instead. If it's an LP Gas fryer, then the gas hose is much smaller and cheaper. We sell all of these if you need one, at Restaurant Equipment Outlet, 888-542-5959, Cincinnati, Ohio. Thanks, Susan

Working on a friends 81 yamaha 650xs. I removed and cleaned the carbs and put them back on but can t remember how the T hose from the petcock to the carbs hook up. Can someone help me


The petcock on these bikes is vacuum operated, which means that there are two hoses that go to it. The thicker hose is the fuel line and it runs from the thick port on the petcock to the fuel input on the carburetor rack. The fuel input on the carburetors is located between the number two and number three carburetor bodies. If you aren't sure which is the fuel connection, just turn the petcock switch to prime for a second and you will see gas come out of the fuel connection.

The thinner hose on the petcock is a vacuum line. It runs from the vacuum port on the #3 cylinder (between the carburetor body and the engine) up to the smaller connection on your petcock. When the engine is turning vacuum is applied to this thinner line and allows fuel to run from the tank into the carburetors.

There are the only two lines that should run to your petcock, and the fuel line should not be split anywhere between the petcock and the carburetors.

Good Luck,

My husband just got a suzuki savage and had to take carburator apart there is 2 hoses that he cant find where they go please help!!


If they are small tubes , the one on the side is probably just a float bowl vent and goes to the front of the rear wheel. The one on the bottom of the carburetor bowl is the drain hose for the bowl and goes to the front of the rear wheel. The vent and drain line just hang in front of the rear wheel and do not connect to anything.
It is possible that one of the lines is a vacuum line and does actually have to plug into a vacuum fuel petcock. If this is the case the fuel will not flow to the carburetor unless the line is hooked up. Hope this helps.

How do i hook up my gas tank to my carbs? i dunno where the plug on the the spickets go to where they hook up on the carbs. is there a full diagram where it shows feul lines going from tank spickets to...


There should be 4 open ports on the carb 1 smaller ones towards the right carb to the front which is the vacuum hose that connects to the smaller connection on the petcock, then the 2 larger holes which are side by side 1 on each carb, they are the breathers, the fuel line goes to the one that is the highest connected by the fuel pipe which you can see going through it and then that connects to the larger hookup on the fuel petcock. The breather hoses just hang down but watch where you put them because they tend to **** in dirt if they are closer to the ground try facing them under the seat away from where dust could be although its pretty unavoidable.

Hoes parrtern for a 1995 suzuki katana gas tank.


there should be a vacuum hose coming from carb 4 that goes to the port on the rear of the petcock. as for the other 2 they are feed lines the 1 facing the rear of the bike goes to a hose between carb 1 and 2 and the 1 facing the front of the bike goes on the hose between carbs 3 and 4. the 2 remaining hoses on the carbs get criss crossed across the carbs and draped down thru the holders on the frame they are just overflow tubes incase you dump your bike. the other hose on the tank is a vent tube. hope this is helpful.
