1992 Ninja ZX600C Carb Issues
I purchased a 92 Ninja 600R for $100 that had been sitting behind a relatives house for about 12 years under a tarp.
It has 6000 original miles on it and I am starting to restore it.
I made a temporary gas tank and cleaned the carbs. I have it running roughly.
The strange part is that I have to block off the clear fuel overflow lines coming off the carb or the bike does not seem to want to stay running, or rev into the higher RPMs. For some reason it also helps if you blow air into the overflow lines.
So I am assuming something is gunked up or stuck and doing either of those things helps it open.
Are there any experts out there that may know what I am accomplishing by blocking off those hoses or blowing into them?
Just FYI it has new spark plugs, and I have verified with a crayon that all cylinders are firing on the headers.
Thanks in advance
