Strong spray from accelerator pump nozzles then nothing?????

Postby doncan2 » Sun Jul 07, 2013 2:59 pm



I have a strong spray from accelerator pump nozzles, bike runs for a few seconds then nothing from the nozzles and bike dies. I have replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, and installed an electric fuel cutoff valve, tried a different accelerator pump I have off another set of carbs. Reset floats. HELP!!!!!!

If you haven't done this I would remove the outlet fuel line from the electric cutoff valve and check for fuel flow to the carbs.

The accelerator pump cavity is filled from the right carb and is used for accelerating only.
The slow speed jet passes fuel to keep it running,or should.
Either your running out of fuel or the jets are plugged.
This is assuming its lack of fuel that kills the engine and not spark.
