oh, I take it you're riding a Steed? Heard of this problem before. Apparently it's quite common amongst Steeds. But all you have to do is twist the cap tighter, just get a rubber thingy to put around.

 

How much for 1) and 2) not sure. I think wash carb is around $60? I haven't had a chance to wash carbs yet. (cos everytime change bike. hahah)

 

my mechaninc said ard 100+ including wash the engine etc. im trying to get the plastics sticker where u use on car to paste the season parking on the windscreen and paste on my fuel cap temporarily while i order a new fuel cap. yup im riding steed. wah u so rich ah everytime change bike lol

sad today my bike got problem i felt like got no power and like no petrol going into the engine went to workshop found that there was water in the system. it seems my fuel cap is not very good anymore and when it rains water seeps in. the mechanic managed to removed some of the water out but he says need to clean the carburettor and the engine as well.

 

Question.

 

1) how much does a new fuel cap cost

2) how much does it cost to wash the carburettor and the whole engine system to get rid of the water inside >?

 

 

Intruders also have problem with the fuel cap as they rattle due to poor seals. I solved the problem, once and for all, by lining the underside of the cap with a thick rubber sheet. Now a little down force on the cap is necessary to lock and unlock the cap. Perhaps you can try this method.

 

Just drained off half the petrol, and top up again. If it starts and runs, just give it a good ride to clear the system. I don't think it's necessary to do carb wash, and I haven't even heard of "wash the whole engine system"

Just pull out the flexible hose at the petcock below the tank.

Bro, please use your initiative ? Matters of such simplicity shouldn't require spoon feeding right ? :cry:

I see. Like that just go to a shop ask them help you drain. Simple task for them. They'll just pull out 2 screws, remove the tank and drain. Coffee money for them. Since you're there might as well do a routine servicing. I'm due for mine soon. The full works. Both filters, all oils, fuilds and coolants and plugs. Ouch.

It is very simple to get rid of those little water in the tank actually. All bottom most carb have a screwhead as shown at the pix below. Try to ride to upmost level of MSCP. There untighten the screw and let the fuel/water mixture flow freely for say 10 seconds. H2O is heavier than fuel, and that area is the bottom-most place before the fuel enter the combustion chamber. The chances of H2O trapped there is high.

 

If the fuel flows on the carpark floor, let it be. It will drys in no time. If you have more than 1 carb, each carb need to be done the same.

 

Best thing to do to kill the boredom while doing the job is to light a stick of cigarette :faint: :faint:

I am neither smart nor a mechanic.

 

If I have no intention of helping, I wouldn't have suggested a solution. What you have asked is really beyond me. See you question below. :faint:

You need to loosen up.... :thumb:

 

Take a chill pill....
