fuel dumping from carb, coming out rt. exhaust

Post by usbaxterr » Sun Sep 02, 2018 9:58 am



1983 GL1100, I was able to get the new harness and bike started right up, although now it seems like there is fuel just dumping into the intake, a lot of it to where coming out of the exhaust. I'm hoping not major and just need to rebuild crabs. Any hints would be great. The bike starts right up and runs very smooth. I'm not losing coolant from cooling so don't believe it's gasket in the heads.
If I look in the intake (air cleaner removed) I can see fuel filling the intake. Should I just rebuild the crabs? Or is there an easier fix?

So checked all cylinders and only no# 3 has a very wet spark plug.

I may just find a shop that can do them for me, I've worked a lot with cars but this is my first bike that I'm doing myself. Figure for 600.00 bucks I've had that much fun just fixing so far. Does any one know if there are any good step by step on how to?

Send them of to one of "our" rebuilders..Pistol Pete, Nix's or Robin go to the NGW site they are all there or Randakk's site..lists them too.. $400 to $500 use Randakk's kit and engine bench dialing in..

The plenum where the carbs attach carries fuel in passages and needs to be looked at as a leak point.

Just for the heck of it try tapping on the float bowls of each carb.....sounds like a float is sticking in one or more of the carbs. Some times taps on them will free the float.

As above from Kurt. I had this on my bsa, just as you described. It's probably the float sticking on one carb, allowing fuel to continually flow. This is not good, as it can seep down past pistons into oil. With bike on centrestand, a long screwdriver and a sharp tap on float bowl often solves this. If it doesn't, then it could be that a float needle has formed a ridge or got a bit of crap on it and isn't sealing off fuel.

ended up having them rebuilt by PistolPete, got them back so will let you know. Very happy how they look, so should fix that problem.
