Spelli Posted January 19 Share Posted January 19 (edited) I seem to be having a problem with the rebuilt carbs. On my Gsx1100et At first I was getting some poping in the exhaust which I put down to a lean condition caused by air leak. changed the carb mounting rubbers which had gone hard. This at first appeared to solve the problem. Started the bike this morning and it started straight away, run for a few minutes and then started to die like it was running out of fuel. then it stopped and would not restart. Spark ok. Plenty of fuel. Opened the float bowl drains and very little fuel came out. attached a remote fuel tank so as to eliminate any fuel tap issues and found fuel was still not flowing even though the one of the float bowls was empty. Pipework is intact. Looks to me like the needle valves have been sticking closed. dismantled the carbs …again and all looks ok. Needle valves appear to open and close as needed. what am I missing ? Could the replacement needle valves and seats be giving me the problem. Should I replace them again? I have seen reference to adapters that fits into the float bowl drains enabling clear pipes to be attached so as to see the actual fuel level in carbs. Any idea where I can buy these or how to make them ? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Edited January 19 by Spelli Quote Link to comment
