    Well, that's a bit of a bugger!!o_O Could explain your problem though.:)

    Did you notice that as soon as the problem appeared to be solved, acute silliness and looniness (looniness??) took over as the relief set in?:D:D:D:cool:

    Thanks for the offer bogg, this morning found the jet under the float, put all back together and now will not start at all, like no fuel, cracked the drain and there is fuel, im lead to believe when on prime i should have fuel flow with all pipes off petcock i have nothing comming out at all, this vacum system seems to be a major prob is there anyway to do away with it and gravity fed

    Hi mate
    When on prime position this is gravity fed
    The vacuum position is to stop the carbs from flooding if the bike is laid up for any length of time and operates the fuel supply when the engine is running
    It sounds to me that you have a blockage at the petcock
    There's a fine gauze filter on the petcock inside the tank
    Very rare but another cause could be a blocked breather on the fuel cap
    Try running it with the cap off
    Be careful mate
    Good luck

    With the tap in the 'prime' position, push it in towards the tank. This should then allow the petrol to flow and is the only way (allegedly) to get fuel to get through the tap - I guess that pushing the tap in to get fuel through is to prevent possible flooding if the tap is inadvertently left in 'prime'. 'Tis the only way mine will work.

    If you can tip the tank so the petcock is out of the fuel level you can remove it and clean the filter and clean the fuel petcock
    When refitted position the tank so fuel is over the petcock again
    On prime fuel should run freely
    On run and res you can get a bit of suitable pipe and suck on it where the vacuum pipe goes
    Again fuel should run freely

    Be careful
    No smoking
    Stick with it mate you'll get there
    It's all a learning curve

    Just a quick update, think ive found the problem, when my tank is bolted into place the vacuum pipe butts up against the frame which cuts off the vacuum, so can i cut back the actual cast alloy tap pipe a bit to give me a bit more room when tank is put where it should be, as i have it now the tank is about half inch to the left which throws the panels off a bit, ive tried every way to feed the pipe but every time it butts against the frame. any thoughts on doing that or is there a different petcock i can get to do away with standard one.
