Now proudly a XJR1300 /2009 model. Fuel issues

Post by Kitters » Mon Aug 07, 2017 10:47 am

Hi to all on this cool forum. I have aquired myself a second hand Yamaha XJR1300 2009 model. The bike stood for two years at a handler in Cologne and was looked after very well. She starts easily and runs smoothly at least I think it does. The only issue is that I smell petrol and I seem to only get around 140 km on a tank. Can it be that the carbs or more likely the floats are sticking and letting in to much petrol? Any help or idiea`s would be a great help thanks.
