All leads have numbers on them still, so all connected up correctly

Coils connected properly, because i've done that before  :lol

I will check when I next go out to it, it ran on all four to start with then number 3 and 4 exhausts were clap cold after 5 minutes


Bike has been off the road for 18 months, finally managed to solve a leaky carb issue and rebuilt the bike. Had a leak on the tank valve, so emptied the tank and put in some fresh petrol when I changed it out.

Bike started, ran on 4 cylinders for a while, and now is down to the left 2? Seems to be running quite rich as well, I can smell the petrol as its running.

Any suggestions? Would very much like to get it back on the road and MOT'd soon, ready for the summer.

Thanks in advance

Might be a long shot but I once took my bike apart and when I put it back together I put the coil pack wires back on in the wrong order, bike spluttered but never fired up because the sequence was wrong.

IIRC the red/black wires go on the right hand side of each connector block

FZS600 Fazer / Rebuilt carbs twice, still pouring fuel from float bowls
« on: 20 November 2023, 06:09:42 pm »

Basically as the title says, bike has been out of action for a couple of years and it developed a fuel leak on one carb. Found a blockage in no.3 carb and I decided to strip and rebuild the carbs with a rebuild kit about a year ago, and one carb leaking turned into all four. Also had to replace one of the manifold rubbers on the airbox as it had deformed. Came back to it a week ago and stripped and rebuilt again, checked all float bowl gaskets etc were sealed properly and put the carbs back in again. Same issue again.

I feel like im banging my head against a brick wall as nothing I try will stop the issue, and i'm not really wanting to spend money getting them professionally rebuilt as the bike in it's current state is worth around what it would cost to get done.

Any tips as to what I may be missing? I'd never done this before, so want to make sure I touch all bases before I make a serious decision on where to go next.
