I've been battling fuel issues with my KLR. Started when I left it sit too long with gas in the carb. I tilted the carb and sprayed it with carb cleaner, figuring that if I could get it running I'd run some seafoam or something thru it.
Sorry, this is a little long.
When I tried to start the bike I had no fuel to the carb (I have a clear fuel filter and can see if fuel is flowing).
So I figured the fuel filter was bad, bought one from Eagle Mike. Also got a screw upgrade and new spark plug. New (still clear) fuel filter, still no fuel.
Then I bought the petcock rebuild kit and "fixed" it. Still no fuel coming out of the tank.
Finally, I decided to go with the manual petcock from Eagle Mike. Put it on and checked that fuel flowed out both for the on and reserve settings, it did. Put the tank back on, connected the hoses and put the cap on the vacuum thing on top of the carb. Turned the petcock to on, no fuel to the filter. Pulled the end of the hose off the carb and checked that fuel flowed (it did) but nothing flowing when attached to the carb.
I'm sure I missed something basic, can someone point me toward it, please.
