Removed gas tank. Think I disconnected too many hoses! Help!
« on: October 07, 2018, 01:39:22 pm »
Hello everyone.
So I removed the gas tank on my zg1000 to install my new auxiliary lights. Put everything back together, it starts great but now I have some moisture dripping from my exhaust. I’m sure I disconnected too many hoses removing the tank. Please help. I am no mechanic

Are you referring to "out of the exhaust" or "under the exhaust"?

I'm not sure how you can cause moisture to drip out of the exhaust because of a hose being installed incorrectly..
Only thing that comes to mind is fuel?
If it is fuel, that requires immediate action.

Check and see if the moisture your referring to is fuel, and give us a better description of your leak.
      Are you referring to hoses at the back or the hoses under the tank near the petcock?
      Did you disconnect coolant lines while doing your project?

To answer your question. 1 is for fuel goes to carburetors, 2 pet c*** to vacuum port between carburetors,
3 at back of tank runs down frame to behind rear tire. Don't know for Calf models.
I think that's all.

Thanks for the response.
I will get back to you as soon as I get home and start it up. The hoses to the petcock are hooked up correctly. Then I have two black lines that are disconnected and one clear line that is disconnected.
Sorry for the poor description, I am a carpenter, definitely not a mechanic.  So, I truly do appreciate your feedback.

the diagram I posted is for a Cali bike, so if yours is a 49 state bike, simply disregard the additional circuits from the tank, to the respective collection devices, a 49 state bike only has a fuel overflow on tank rear, which runs down and back and ends at the rear swingarm, and "emergency drain" located in the plastic housing covering the fuel level sensor, that runs to the same area as the tank overflow drain hose, a vacume line from a carb to the petcock, and a fuel line from the tank petcock to the carb fuel rail... another vacume line runs from another carb, up to the vacume "pump switch" atop of the valve cover, where the large hose that runs to the airbox is...
2 clear vent hoses come from the carb bank, up and rearwards along the frame back bone, and are just carb vents, they don't connect to anything, they should be aimed downwards at the open end, and make sure they are not blocked in any manner, with spider egg nests, or plugs.

so the vacume hoses from the carb bank are
1 to the petcock
1 to the air pump
2 nipples get 'capped' (do not tie them together)
