  • Bang Cut Grind ..Dam Did I Need That Part ?
Messing with the 500 tonight and got it back started ! After it was running for a min just died and on looking at it looks as if there's no fuel in the lines ? Take the line off the carb and turn fuel on it's fine . So my question is ..floats stuck , jet clog ?

    • Carb cleaning in MN
Open the drain screws on each carb and see which float/s may be stuck.  Odd though,as all 4 would have to be stuck if fuel wasn't going in.  (or 3 are full and the 4th is stuck)

Could also be the gas tank vent.  If clogged it acts like a pop bottle when you drink fast and don't let any air in. Slows the fuel flow considerably.  Try leaving the gas cap open and if it continues to run well, there's your problem.

Hey DreadRock,

Just checking back in.  I want to get back into riding my XS500 but it's hard when my KZ650 runs so well.  I want to put some VM32's on the XS so I am curious how you made out in the end. 

I would going to purchase this kit and the intake boots you used but wanted to know what jets you ended up with...and did you get you issues worked out?
