Double check the float needle seat. Often a piece of debris will lodge itself under the needle. Check your fuel tank/fuel valve for debris or damage to the strainer screen on the fuel valve.

SOURCE: float needle. PLEASE does anyone know where I can

From a Sym dealer, or from the carb manufacturer. If you look on the carb you will be able to see a makers name, you will also need the needle size for your bike.

Hi, George if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

My kymco leaks gas from the overflow on the bottom of the carb constantly I have cleaned the carb many times and tried to adjust it at the needle valve but still leaks from the overflow


Hi Shannon:
Possibles:
- Needle valve has been compromised, possibly held open with grit.
Carefully dismantle and blow out all orifices with compressed air.
- Float level set too high. Review the way the float shutoff mechanism works. Make sure the float moves up and down easily and that it still floats as intended. Double check the lever that moves the needle valve. Make sure it is correctly connected to the needle.
Reply as a COMMENT to this post to let me know what you find.
Cheers.

Adjust mikuni carb float


Pull the float bowl and float bowl gasket off the carburetor.
Place the carburetor upside down and let the float rest against the float needle.
Measure the distance between the gasket surface located on the bottom of the carburetor to the edge of the float. On a 24 mm Mikuni card, the distance between the gasket surface and the float should be 1 inch. On a 20 mm Mikuni carburetor it should be 7/8-inch.
Bend the metal tab on the float that rests against the float needle. Bend it towards the float needle if the measurement is shallow and away from the needle if the measurement is too much.
Use a pair of needle-nose pliers, making very small adjustments to the metal tab and then recheck the measurement.

I have half a float in my pit bike carb how do i start it i cant find another float all that matches the shape of the half one that is in my bike already it is a triangular shaped black plastic or rubber...


You can't run that with half a float. A float is a part that is specifically designed a certain way and size to match the needle . If your float is wrong it will either open to much or not enough the needle valve causing a flooded carb or a carb with not enough fuel to run. I'd check eBay for one or find find a matching carb on eBay ( make sure the mm's are the same as far as the intake side and exhaust side and if the throttle cable slide is in the same location it will work.if its one of those funny named Japanese bikes like a bms or sum thing they got a bunch of those on eBay .

Carburator is overflowing out air vents


Check if the float still floats...
When replacing the top cover, look out that no needle pushes the float down.
I don't know if a clip should be there. In case off, you'll se a trace of it.

Just bought a 82 xj650. It has some flooding on the right carb. any suggestions? Gas comes out the right side exhaust, also dies after running about 10 to 15 minutes.


Yes.

1.Remove the Float Bowl, (Turn gas off first), and clean the crud out of the bowl. (Bottom of the carburetor)
There is a brass nut in the middle of the float bowl, which is on the bottom of the carburetor.
There is a fiber, or brass washer on that bolt. DON'T lose it! (Turn it to the left)
The brass bolt, (Main Jet Plug), goes through the float bowl, and into the Main Jet.

Remove the float, (Carefully! If it's a plastic designed float, Don't nick it with your fingernail/s. Also make sure it isn't soaking up gas. If so, {You'll know!}, replace it)

A.DON'T let the float needle valve fall out, when you remove the float! The Float Needle is attached to the float, with a small 'hair spring' clip.

B.DON'T lose the tiny, 'hair spring' clip, that attaches the float needle to the float.
Observe VERY carefully how this tiny spring clip goes on the float, ->Before you remove the float pin. (The float rotates up, and down, on this long round pin) It has to be put back the same exact way)

Handle the float with extreme care. It is set to a certain height. The measurement goes from the bottom of the carburetor body, (Where the side of the float bowl touches), to the top edge of the float.

The top of the Float Needle has a groove cut around it. That 'Hair Spring' clip I described above, clips in this groove. The other end of this 'Hair Clip', goes around a flat area that extends out of the side of the float.
Once you get the float bowl down a bit, you'll see what I'm referring to above.

C.The Float Needle Valve is made of metal, and has a Neoprene, (Like rubber), tip on the end. The Neoprene tip is cone shaped. A light little ring mark on the Neoprene tip is okay.
If the tip is broken, or mushed out, the Float Needle Valve is no good.

More than likely you just have crud in the float bowl, and it is also down in the Float Needle Valve Seat.
(The Float Needle Seat is a brass cylindrical shaped piece. It has a tapered hole inside, down at the bottom. Fuel, {Gas} comes through this tapered hole, and the Float Needle Valve regulates how much. The float raises, which raises the float needle valve. Fuel comes through the tapered hole. The float drops, which lowers the float needle valve, and stops fuel from coming through the tapered hole, and into the float bowl)

After time, the bottom of your gas tank develops rust, from moisture in the gasoline.
Dirt also finds it's way into a bike's gas tank. Also the additives in gasoline accumulate after a while.

If you do not have an inline fuel filter, I advise you buy, and install one. This way you change the fuel filter element, and do not have to tear the carb/s down again.

Leaky carb


Here's the deal. The only way gas can be leaking out the carb is because of a float problem. Only six things can create the problem.
  • Gas is getting into the float and is stopping it from actually floating.
  • The rebuiler forgot to put the float needle back into the carb.
  • the rebuilder bent the float level adjustment tang far enough out of range that the needle valve can't close.
  • Many floats have a needle retainer clip that actually holds the needle loosely to the adjusting tang. If the clip was lost the needle can jam at an angle and not be able to close.
  • The rebuilder left out the float mounting pin or the pin is bent or not installed correctly. The float must be loose on the pin once the assembly is in place.
  • The rebuilder left out the float mechanism entirely. This is not very likely.
It might be possible that the mainjet or mainjet 'O' ring was left out and that might cause the problem. I have never seen this before but I just want to cover all, ( even remote ), possibilities.

You paid for the rebuild so I would take the carb back to the rebuilder. You might want to call a Honda dealer's parts department and ask if the parts diagram for the carb shows a float needle retainer clip. Also ask the cost of a " carb kit " Now. if the rebuilder says there is no clip on that carb, you can argue the point.

I wish I could be there with you. Get your money back for the "rebuild" ( less the cost of the carb kit ), and have the dealership fix it. I really want to know what you find out on this problem. Please post a comment on the results.

Please rate this answer after the problem is found. Thanks Chris.
