Just rebuilt the carb on my 1980 Suzuki TS250 and when I took it apart I noticed the tab on the float that contacts the needle was bent in a way that would force the needle to close. I think the guy I bought the bike from did this in an attempt to stop gas from running all over his garage when he forgot to shut the pet cock off. The problem is that I wasn't getting gas to run down the fuel line fast enough to run the engine continuously. It usually will run for 4ish miles before it starts to chug and eventually die. So I tried to solve the problem... so I bent the tab flush with the rest of the bracket that holds the floats thinking this would allow the needle to separate from the seat and allow gas flow into the carb breaking the vacuum that is preventing the gas from flowing. However this did not fix the problem completely. I know there is no gas because I have a clear fuel filter installed. I am now wondering if I have an issue with the petcock not allowing gas to flow out or the carb is making a vacuum that won't allow gas to flow down the fuel line and reach the carb. The problem isn't the fuel filter restricting flow because there isn't gas getting into the filter. Also, I don't have a vacuum line attached to my petcock. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
seekthedeep posted a topic in DRZ400/E/S/SMHi guys! I own a DRZ400s and have a question about taking a different approach to the standard leaky petcock Fix. So, I just ordered the fix a lot of people recommended on here for the leaky stock petcock: The Petcock off of a Yamaha Raptor. I did this after looking for other vacuum petcocks and not finding good alternatives. However, I found a part made by Pingel, and was wondering if it would work in conjunction with the Yamaha Raptor petcock, in order to give me the perks of the Suzuki Vacuum Petcock, without it's shoddy craftsmanship and limited life. Could one of you guys help me out, and tell me if this would work? Do I just place the Pingel Inline Vacuum Valve on the fuel line between the Raptor Petcock and the Carb? Or does the Pingel Valve work as a petcock all on it's own? Thanks guys. Besides hitting the dirt often, I am trying to use my DRZ to zip around Los Angeles and make deliveries with postmates/grubhub/etc, so I would not like have to shut off the manual petcock every time I hop on/off the bike. Thanks again guys!
