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.
