I assume by the petrol pipe you mean the one from the petrol tap to the carb's? If its that most care spares places well stock it to. Air filter, well i dunno what bike it is so cant say where you may get one of them.

Well im assuming still that you mean the pipe from the tap to the carb's. Any bike or car spares place well sell that cut to length. The filter, well as shaggy says, run it without. At worst you'll get a little extra noise from the air box and a bit of popping on the over run. No worries

Overflow pipes normally exit down by the centre stand mounts, Im wondering why the carbs would overflow, If its while the bike is standing. not running then maybe the diaphram on the back of fuel tap has split allowing fuel to flow at all times, assuming of course its a vacuum fed carbs, most modern'ish bikes are, but it makes me think that he has a sticking float bowl, possibly on the number 1 carb, as its first inline from fuel tap, and also lowest while parked on side stand, and this has back fed the airfilter, as the carb body on no1 is lower than the overflow's on all the carbs so giving chance of backffed presure, or i could be talking bollox of course.

Well try this, on the no 1 carb, ie the one nearest the fuel tap, look underneath and somwhere there will be a drain screw , big looking buggers nomally on underside of float bowl, put a funnel under it to a pot and undo the screw with the petrol tap turned to prime, at same time as flowing petrol running through the funnel, twat the carb bowl side with a small hammer, to dislodge any dirt, keep watching the petrol in pot to see if any siht comes out, then repeat through the others. That normally clears most blockages. Ohh yea dont do it with any fuka smoking around you. !!!

Probably No.2 carb float sticking as No. 2 carb gets fuel first on the kwak 750's. Give all the float bowls a good clean and I would not run it without an airfilter as it will cause the bike to run very lean.

I have a manual here if you need one, I can post it to you in the morning.

For any parts you need, give Z Power a call and tell them Grav sent you.

NOt really sure if you have vavuum fed carbs, I think it would be, if the tap has just a prime on and reserve, then its most prob vacuum, if its a gravity feed, it will just have on of and reserve positions, not always but good rule of thumb. Try disconnecting all the pipes from the tank, ie big and little pipes, and turn the tap to on, if the petrol flows maybe diafram has split.


Ohh yea for the confused

Rule of thumb comes from dickensien times, where a man was allowed by law to beat an insulant wife wiath a Birch branch no thicker than his thumb, hence rule of thumb, which also made men with small hands good husbands

750 Zephyr has a standard kwak 750 vacuum tap. The tap repair kit is only around a tenner and consists of a diaphragm and tap seal.

Grav

I had a zephyr you know........
