Hello everyone, yesterday i picked up my ninja 500r from the shop to have to carbs reconditioned. I bought the bike after it had been sitting, and had gone through everything but the carbs, and wanted a professional to do them because i'm not the best at them.
So they cleaned them and put in new float valves. I had cleaned out the tank and put new gas in it, but when they had it they said the gas in the tank was no good, but they got it to run by pouring gas straight into the fuel line. (i think this is the tell tale sign of the issue)
So i get it home and take the tank off and drain it and put new gas in it, hooked everything back up, let it sit for a few minutes. It starts and runs and i can rev it up for a little bit, but then it won't let you do anything more than idle. If you give it throttle it shuts off. It will idle just fine.
So it seems to me there is an issue with the gas getting to the carbs. Tank gas good gas (bought today), It has a little over a gallon so i'm keeping it on reserve for good measure, new fuel line with no kinks. I know this is a vacuum system, so gas only comes out when it's needed. vacuum hose from carb is hooked up to petcock.
Could this be an issue with the petcock? that's the only thing left that i haven't repaired/replaced. Or is it some other vacuum related issue to the carbs?
Any and all help is appreciated!!
