Fuel Flow Diagram

Is there a diagram that shows the fuel system? The only thing I can find on line or in the workshop manual is a California model, but since I don't plan on moving to California any time soon. it doesn't really work for me.

When I got the bike it was in pieces. I have a bunch of hoses in a box that came with it...I just don't know what to do with them.

An hour and a half, and still no response.

I'll suggest that you purchase a Kawasaki or Clymer SERVICE MANUAL!

Chaa, this can be confusing.

Basically, it goes like this: If you ain't got a California model, you don't need a diagram.

There is the fuel hose that goes to the carb, a vacuum hose that goes from the vacuum side of the carb to the petcock, and a single vent tube off of the tank and a vent line off of the carb.

If you have an evap can and a tank with two pipes coming out of the back of it then you have a California model. Those California models get around, so even if you live in South Carolina you might have one. If that's the case, you need that diagram.

Tells us what ya got and we'll tell ya where it goes.

Two excellent answers. Let me add a poorer quality one also: if you have no idea how to read the vacuum hose diagrams or don't understand the system enough to use the information, let us know that and we'll try to help. IME, very little of this speaks to how smart or worth while one is. I might happen to know something and happy to offer it in hopes that it will pay someone forward.

Thanks. Yes I Have the Clymer manual but it only has the California diagram. Mine has 2 hose attachments on the petcock and 1 at the back of the tank.

I know some go to the carburetor and some go someplace else.
But I am not ashamed at all to admit that I know very little about the workings of the system nor do I know what any of the hose connectors are called. Even a hand - drawn sketch would help me figure it out.

There are quite a few posts on the various forums I have found that say what gets connected to what but since I don't know the names of the parts yet it will take me a bit of figuring out. I can do it, sure, but a diagram would be easier. I was just wondering if anything like that existed.

Thanks. I bought the bike for real cheap, but it came in a bunch of boxes. Been working on it and am now ready to hook up the fuel system and see what happens.

It might be useful for you to add your location because you might find someone is right around the corner with a box of beer, fresh pizza and nothing to do.
