2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 Rear Carb Leaking out the side , not bowl overflow

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Hoping someone will be able to help.

I have a 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 with twin Keihin Carbs CKVR D32. The Rear Carb is leaking out the side during cranking. it is not the float bowl overflow. It is on the opposite side of the carb from the diaphragm. 

I got this bike not running and someone had already messed with it. I took the carbs apart , cleaned and rebuilt. Everything went pretty easy.  It looks like it could be missing a small tube between the carbs but I have all of them listed in the service manual installed. See the pic for where it is leaking from...

Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks.

Have you looked on the other side of the carburetor to see if there’s a brass plug ? 

My guess is if someone was tinkering around with it then maybe something was removed.

I'm thinking wrong routing of hoses or could very well be missing hoses.

Ok, I took it completely apart. that hole looked sealed. I blew in it and it is sealed. The only other place gas could come from would be the pass through tube just above it. I took out the pass through tube and looked at it under a magnifying lamp... There it was... A small crack in the o-ring. I put new o-rings on it and put it back in. That fixed it... it was leaking down onto that other opening that made it look like it was coming from there...

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      Hello I'm new here and not sure on where this should be posted but here goes. I have a 2007 Kawasaki 360 4x4, it started to make a small knocking sound and few weeks ago. I checked all the normal things and didn't find anything. I just used it around the house as my yard machine, no real heavy loads or stress on it. And it ran fine with no problems. Well one day I went to roll my yard with my roller that i filled with sand. It put the 4wheeler under a load for the first time, well it ran fine for about 20 mins then i stopped to do something and it started but there was nothing there. It would not rev up enough to engage the belt drive and the knock got a lot louder. Sounds like the knock is coming from the top end. And ideas in where to start. I have worked on some stuff and mechanically inclined just never tore into an engine before.

      Bought a nonrunning 1996 bayou 400. Tore down engine and found major problems. Piston is damaged and cylinder liner needs replacing. Looks like cause was a broken oil pump gear.
       
      Question is can a piston from a prairie 400 be used? Is it the same engine? I assume the liner is replaceable?

      At 3am a white box trailer hooked to an SUV, color unsure, came to my backyard, cut the cables locking my 4 wheeler in and stole it. It is a 2018 Hunter green Kawasaki Brute Force 750. It has a light bar on the front and 28” Outlaw tires.

      So a few weeks ago ended up buying a 02 Bayou 300 for 100.00
      Get there to see it and motor was gone through and parts missing, stuff not connected
      and a big freekin bucket of parts and bolts. He said had no power and mechanic said it was
      the wrist pin. Ended up leaving it in pieces and left like that. I end up getting most of it back together
      and manage to get it to fire up. I drive it and has no power! No missing just no power. I figure check 
      the timing chain as he did replace that. Well I spin the motor over and guess what!
      A blind guy could have done a better jobs. Just one question, I  loosen the top bolt on the tensioner then remove it
      right? Nothing is gonna fall inside the motor is it? just making sure, need this out before I can move the cam gear 
      to the right location. Thanks in advance Az
