Clutch bleed on a Suzuki 1400 Intruder 2000

One the left-hand side of the bike (facing forward), there is cover plate just ahead of the drive shaft. Remove that cover (mine has 8mm bolts). The bleeder valve is under this cover. Go to an auto parts store and get a "one man bleeder kit" or if you have some plastic tubing that will fit over the valve, you can use that and a clean jar. Follow the instructions on the bleeder kit, or if you're using the jar and tubing, fill the jar about a quarter of the way with break fluid (use DOT4, but never DOT5!). Take the cover off the master cylinder up at the handlebars, place the tube over the end of the bleed valve (after loosening it a turn or two. Place the other end of the tube down in the break fluid in the jar. Work the clutch lever until you stop getting bubbles in the jar. Be sure to keep the fluid level up in the reservoir. Tighten the bleeder valve, remove the tubing, top off the fluid and replace the covers.

Be careful not to get brake fluid on anything. It will eat paint and mess up other things.

Headlights not working honda CBF600

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Check the starter switch. There is a hidden switch inside the starter switch. When the starter switch is pressed, this hidden switch disengages the headlight. This is to ensure that the starter gets maximum power when starting and not partially robbed by the headlight. Depending on the version, this switch would be connected to the black/red & blue/white wires.

A way to confirm is to partially jumper these 2 wires.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

My bike back fires an blows flames out the carbs i have oil an neutral an wont crank?

Aha, a MYSTERY' Bike. Take out the things that are not relevant. Oil, nothing to do with it. Being in Neutral, nothing to do with it. Won't crank? Kick start, bump start. Cranking means 'turning over', nothing else. If it won't turn over it is siezed, but then you would get no flames. You are cranking but not firing except you are, you are getting flames. So let's say it won't start and run :>) Bad ignition timing Dirty carburetor Badly adjusted valves or stuck valves. Unless your MYSTERY bike is a 2 stroke.... NO valves, broken reed valves perhaps. Bottom line year make model in ALL questions

2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 classic has a fuel leak from the carburetor

More than likely you have a bad fuel petcock. No fuel should go from tank to carb without the engine running because the fuel is pulled by vacuum. Remove line from petcock an have it set to on or reserve position and if fuel comes out it is bad, and let's the fuel continue to flow to the carb and seep into the engine oil also. Mine was bad and had my oil thin as water with all the gas in it. Wonder it didn't wash a bearing out of the engine. Check and drain oil immediately if the petcock is bad.

I had the oil changed and a new air filter put on

Yes, its the needle and seat (in the bottom of the carbs) that controls the flow of gas into the carburetor, when they get ANY dirt (of any kind) between the needle and the seat..this does not allow the flow to shut off completely. This fills the float bowl until it over flows out the needle jet/pilot jet and it runs into the cylinders and back into the air box/air filter. Your fuel system needs cleaning (NOT WITH ANY ADDITIVE) - actual disassembly and cleaning..INCLUDING the carburetors and add a fuel filter to the fuel line between the tank and the carbs..

I have a 99 Kawasaki Vulcan classic one car bike why would the bike flood the back spark plugs and put gas in my air filter been trying to figure it out but I need help

Brandon, From Vulcan forum, one of the hoses that are hooked to the carb is a vent tube and may run up and under seat, if this hose is plugged or pinched it could cause similar issue to what you are experiencing. Links below discuss the issue you are presently having. Check the attached links,instruction and guides,also you can also google (Kawasaki Vulcan flooding rear cylinders) for more info.

My 2000 Vulcan 800 Classic has gas in air filter

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your posted description indicates a carb overflow and that the carbs require a pulldown, disassembly; soaking in carb cleaner, cleaning the jets, vents, holes, ports and the walls of the bowl and inner body for the varnish like gunk of old/stale gasoline specially the fuel inlet valve.

As fuel is fed to the carbs,  the floats in the carb's bowl would rise up and engage the inlet cutoff valve closing the inlet port and therefore no further fuel would flow in. Fuel overflow would then indicate possibly that:
  • the valves are not closing;
  • their is an obstruction along the inlet ports and blocks closing of the valves;
  • floats are stuck open or punctured;
  • the float height would require adjustments;
  • necking, ridges, grooves, scratches exist on either the valve or the port allowing fuel entry even if closed.
All of the above would require a pulldown of the carbs for inspection, further cleaning or applicable repairs/rebuilt as initially described.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
