Fuel Shutoff Valve

5 posts in this topic

I have a CBR 600 that I bought last week. It ran well but thought I would rip it apart and clean out the carbs and do the plugs and oil. I have everything back together and it won't run without the choke on. When I take the fuel line off the gas tank and open the valve nothing comes out. If I take the plate off the side of the valve that has the rubber dampener in it and open the valve gas comes pouring out which would tell me the filter inside the tank isn't plugged. Put the plate back on with the dampener and turn the valve on and nothing?? What gives?? I know it won't run because its not getting gas.

Hondarider you know when you take stuff apart and forget to put it back together the way it was....yea aparently it helps to have the vacume hose hooked up to the shut off valve so it can pull that dampener in to allow the fuel to come out!! I will wear the Donkey sticker for a while.........Runs like a dream though. blush

Well thats great that you got it figured out... Sometimes it is the little things that we overlook that makes all of the difference. Im glad that it was all that it was and your cycle is running fine... Could have cost alot more.
