Removing the 'Kleen' system from a 2000' ZX9R
can anyone tell me the correct way to remove the California emission system. I have a bike that I bought with the canister removed and need to verfiy that all was done correctly.
I've got a flooding problem that so far have not been able to figure out. I've replaced all the float valves, adjusted the float heights, checked most of the bikes hardware out and it still floods.
The bike runs and idles perfect once started, but noticed fuel pooling up on butterflies when bike is hot and parked after riding.
When float bowls are empty, bike starts right up with no smoke from exhaust. The smoke when it happens, smells strong of fuel.
All diaphrams in carbs are perfect and floats are not cracked. all jets are tight and cleaned up carbs. Bike did this when I bought it. Bike has a Muzzy header and K & N filter.
All hoses are there for vacuum valve and vacuum switch. Vacuum valve tube which went to breather and canister is plugged off. Gas tank rear where it was connected to the canister is connected together between 1 and 2 tank tube. Reed valves are still connected to the vacuum switch.
No hoses pinched either.
