Hey guys. I'm new to the site and glad to have found it since I just rebuilt the carbs on my '83 VF750F. I put the gas tank on tonight and turned the engine over, but no fire. I disconnected the fuel line and found it dry as a bone. I took the tank back off and turned the valve to on. Not a drop of gas came out. I sloshed the gas around inside the tank ( it only has about 1.5 gal in it) and then gas came out like crazy. I then shut the valve off and put the tank back on the bike. I hooked up the fuel line and turned the engine over. Nothing again. I checked the fuel line again and it was dry. I opened the fuel valve again with the fuel line off and again no gas coming out. I sloshed the gas around again but this time not a drop of gas coming out with the valve open or on reserve. Is this a fuel valve problem? The tank was sitting for months with about 2 gal. in it. Any help would be great. I also am having problems with loose throttle and choke cables since I put the carbs back on. The clymer manual isn't much help. Do I need new cables?
