an able to own a 99 Katana 600f. love the bike. am not a full time GEARHEAD , yet i have my highs and lows turning a wrench. Now for a little while prior to the now, the bike after start would # flood# if she was on the kickstrand for too long, the initial start ALL the Makunis would not be working together. ive tiltedit in the opposite direction and it seemed to work for the moment (so i thought).
the last time i was able to take her out for a good trip into New LOndon, coming back into RI . she began the #flood on the freeway, thinking it would burn out as before...馃様 she came to a stop, and didnt get to run the same ever. if anyone has had like this issue... or anything similar please dont hesitate on GREATLY NEEDED FEEDBack. been doing the same with the carbs. or is it the LACK of suction/ TOO much pull from the makunis...

and to be complete... a family member got her to turn over succesfully. but the issue never fully was taken care of until now she doesnt turn on....HELP
I'm no mechanic so I'm just spit-balling.
I wonder if your floats are stuck. If they split, leaked, or are stuck in the lowered position the bowls would be continuously trying to fill, even when they are already full. Maybe a carb rebuild would fix the issue.
Remove and clean carbs ... Pay attention to float level , and polish seat where inlet needle seats .... And , Tell us more about you , your bikes , where you ride Welcome to the forum ..

after putting it all together... it didnt work. wether it was the fuel from theo tank or a seperate bottle to feed the gasline, she did not remain. running

would the Webers pull from the tank be the culperate?
Sounds to me like your float levels are off.
If you do it your self, be sure to study several Youtube videos on how to set them for your particular carbs because the carbs have to be held at a specific angle upside down to get the correct measurement.
If the level is wrong, or as Bweighmaster says, the pins are sticking, the fuel will flow continuously trying to fill the already full bowls.
If a float has a split in it and has taken on fuel, it won't float and you'll get the same result.
