Zzr from memory is not vacuum fed

Zzr1100 c is on and off

Zzr600 e had on off res

If you tilt the tank too far it will come out of the overflow. Best to remove tank fully if working on bike as they are prone to being weak near the rear mount and corrode .

Do something ( marker pen or red lenstape) to difuse / cover over those fuel lights as at night they will blind you if flashing and distract you .....
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

What's involved in fixing it ? ( 😁 ) Usually the microscopic hole in this component has become blocked and needs poking through . I use a single bristle from a fine wire brush or a piece of guitar string ( High E ) Oddly , in the drawing , the diaphragms are not illustrated and they are the fiddly bit .

Thanks for responses. Would process mean entirely empty tank to be able to take that off and apart?

Not completely empty , as long as you can lean it against the wall with the level below the tap and filler . If you want to avoid spillage you could stick a brake hose clamp on the fuel line . Or use a small pair of pliers and a zip tie .

Can't you siphon some fuel out to make it easier?

Finished putting the wheels back in the Silverwing and took it for a gentle ride; New tyres, damp roads, steady as she goes.

Bridget is all back together now, just finished the last few jobs, cleaning and refitting the front sprocket cover and the chain guard, and i only have a couple of bits left over :thumb: , one is a locking washer but for a splined bolt or something and a little plastic bung no idea where that goes so overall pretty happy, she just needs a good clean and polish now :cheers:

Hi Mate
It is worth checking the front sprocket nut as these are often secured with a washer that bends over and the shaft is splined.
Just thinking that if the nut did spin loose it could be a disaster.

Hopefully I am wrong !
