i have a 95 f3 i replaced the air filter and gasoline filter and i took the carbs off and had each cleaned professionally and put new gas in the tank. whyle riding the bike going about 80 in 3rd or 4th coming to a stop the bike died whyle slowing down like it was flooded out then when i tryed starting it back up it wouldnt keep an idle but when the choke is fully engaged it idles around 2-3 then when the idle is put back it dies or when i give it throttle it dies. any ideas??
Dont mean to sound like an smartazz, but do you have the petcock turned on? (I've left it off several times lol) Also, is your pump working good? i may be completely off from what is wrong, but just trying to help Good luck!
Well easy check for fuel pump is to turn the engine over or actually start the bike while having your hand on the back of the pump (on the black cap) and you should feel a slight kick every few seconds
It's not flooding if it starts with choke and doesn't without, it's starving. After checking fuel pump as mentioned above, loosed drain screws on carb bowls to make sure fuel flows out tubes onto the ground.
Definitely sounds like the bike isn't getting fuel. To see if there is a fuel pump issue, just bypass the pump. Run the fuel line from the filter directly into the carbs. If the bike starts up, then you might want to pull the pump and test it externally.
well the fuel pump is kicking its kicking about 2 times a second i believe maby more it seems like thats working fine not sure what it could be it idles with the choke all the way open then when i close the choke it dies.
