I have currently bought a 1981 Kawasaki KZ550 ltd and im experiencing a lot of trouble with the fuel system. When the motorcycle cranks the thing sounds like it is starving for fuel. It has a vacuum petcock on it but i have cleaned that and still no luck. There is no suction coming out of the vacuum line therefore it is not pulling the fuel in to the carburetor. What can i do to fix this problem? The bike will crank but when i go to give it throttle it sputters and goes dead. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
