86 XT600 wont start,fuel problem?

Recommended Posts

I have an 86 XT600 ,it will only start and run for a short time if I squirt fuel in the carb intake.It has been sitting for about a year,I guess something inside the carb needs cleaned or is blocked ? I took the YDIS carb off and cleaned it ,it looked clean inside,any ideas very much appreciated ,thanks

Did you take the float bowl off and clean out the jets and check the float operation? Is the gas fresh? If you take the gas line off the carb and turn on the petcock, will the gas run free? Any of these will cause your problem.

We found the carb float level way low,not letting enough fuel in before the needle closed.We raised the level to the correct height,starts and runs great now,thanks for your help.
