New to this forum hope someone can help me, bought a 1993 zx1100 on my-bay, got it here finally. I am impressed that it starts and runs, but it leaks fuel out of the front air induct tubes under the headlight. Seller posted carb work recently done and it leaked under a bowl but this is James Bond flame throwing out of the front. I think stuck float manual is on the way before I do anything, any help from anyone would be MUCH appreciated. Bought this bike to restore it, 24k on her needs paint and some minor cosmetic work {mirrors, front turn signals, seat } cannot wait to bring her back, THANKS for any help with this TAS...

Firstly welcome to ZXF. Do you know if you have a C or D series. Either way there is a long way for the fuel to go to get out the front. I would think there must be some hose connected worng

Start taking her about....... Remove the carbs and go over EVERYTHING that "Mr. Mechanic" PO did to them... I personally find it hard to believe that the bike runs with fuel spitting out the induction tubes.

It should be a D model, since the C had a SINGLE ram air tube...

Welcome aboard, but i have to ask... So please forgive me. WTF is up with Gingrinch winning your State anyway???

finally got time to pull the carbs today, guys I am shocked I guess mr mec in P.A. didn't have $48 for gaskets so he just PACKED grey gasket silicone on the bowls, the float are all hung up and can't friggin move at all, just ordered new gaskets should have them Wed. floats don't move so gas will run up and out of the intake tube thus the James Bond flame thrower if you all want to try? NOT.. DO IT RITE OR DON'T DO IT AT ALL...THANKS for your help guys keep the on two wheels TAS...
