Good call, Bob. Thanks. I actually put the carbs back on again. They tried to get me. Well, not the carbs. My left petcock, which has always worked well, including not letting gas drip out of my tank...

One last thing before I put it together again...

This sojourn into my XS11 carbs has been far more eventful than I anticipated. It started a few days ago when I decided to start it. I put in gas and opened prime on the petcocks. Gas flowed...

Rather than having my house explode, I drained all gas from the bike and I have separated the carbs and tank from the bike. I've been all over these carbs the last few days and I am confident I have...

WEll, after a night of exposure to gas, the T's did seem to swell a bit. The leak is more of a seep, right now. Still enough to really stink up the garage and front room. I need to go to Harbor...

I'm not riding anywhere today anyway. I guess I'll give it overnight and see what happens.

Massive fuel leak

For those who will see pictures of this fuel leak on the national news tonight - don't worry, it's not Arkansas flood pictures. Even of the crests on the waves off flowing fuel are surf able.

OK,...

OK, my problem may be solved. I am not absolutely sure yet, but a test drive around my neighborhood demonstrated that I have smooth and consistent acceleration up through 5,000 rpm. I cannot say for...

At the very least you have to clean the valve needle and seat inside the carb (that's where gas comes into the carb). If working correctly the float will close the needle valve when the carb is full...

I have the carbs on the bench right now. The floats were spot on - at least as far as I can tell. The inline fuel filters seemed a bit restricted, so I replaced them. I hope it was just the fuel...

I plan to check the fuel system from the tank to the float to confirm flow. There are other good suggestions to pursue.

I tried to do butterfly seals on a set of carbs several years ago. I will...

Now you both have me thinking fuel starvation rather than an air leak. That actually seems to tie the clues together a little better. Plus, this way I start with the tank, so save the 12 minutes it...

Float level. I forgot float level. Thanks, Ray.

I am pretty sure I used a good sealant when I installed these carbs holders when I bought them new. I was hoping that would not be the cause of the...

Can bad exhaust gaskets cause lean conditions?

My carbs are clean. They've been off three times now, so I'm finally confident of that. My air filter is a K&N. It is pink, not dusty. I have a 4-1 exhaust. Jetting is stock. The bike ran fine with...

Popping in exhaust

Hi Guys, it has been a while since I rode my XS11 regularly, and a while since I spouted regularly. But the bike is back out and here I am.

Since bringing Incubus out of her slumber, I noticed...

How many times have I pulled these carbs?

So I put a frozen dinner in the microwave. It was Salibury steak. The large size. I hit the start button. Nine minutes. What can I do to kill nine minutes? I know! I'll pull the carbs from my still...
