    2001 yamaha xl800 no gas to carbs

    I just picked up 2001 xl800 the gas lines and gas filter are good but gas is not getting into the carbs.
    I sprayed starting fluid into carbs and it starts right up.
    Is the fuel pump part of the carb?

    if there is fuel in the filter, most likely your carbs gummed up and the interenal filters are clogged and need a rebuild

    Can remove the carbs without taking off exhaust

    I think you have to partially remove the exhaust to get to the carbs on that ski.

    Is the fuel filter filling up with fuel or staying bone dry? You might have a restriction in the selector valve or in the pickups. did you try it on reserve too?

    It is so much easier to remove the exhaust.It really is very easy.Trust me i have taking them off almost everyday.No one seems to know why mine will not hold prime.I rebuilt the crbs,resealed reeds .and still have to prime it every time i wanna start it
