Servicing the fuel system - check over .
-Clean out the air filter as well , and re-oil prior to fitting ( not strictly fuel but important )
- Check inside the tank for any debris , water etc
- make sure any breather holes for the tank are clear and able to breath in air ( this could restrict fuel flow )
- Check and clean the internal tank tap filter
- After refitting check for leaks and refit hoses making sure
all hoses are tightly fitted and no leaks and no splits or damage to pipes .
- make sure fuel pipe is of adequate diameter and construction so as not to obstruct fuel flow .
- fit and inline fuel filter if needed .
- There is also a small filter on the carb , behind the inlet connection clean this as well .
- if the bike is running badly or will not start very well , then clean the carb out thoroughly
- Make sure all jets are correct sizes and set you float height correctly and clean the float
valve and hole out as well while you there .
- Check the inlet manifold for cranks and correct fitment , any leakage here will affect the
running of the bike and possibly cause a non start issue .
- check the reed valves hold the reeds up to a light source and you should not see much if
any light source through them if you can its a sign of wear and will affect the running .
Heres a photo of the internal fuel filter and it clearly shows the fuel filter on the end of the internal
tank fuel pipe , its worth stripping the tank tap down and cleaning out internally if problems persist .
