Carburetor help

Lads, quick question, Iíve refitted the carbs to the baby Gixxer and Iím not sure where two pipes go.
On the carbs thereís a pipe in the centre of them up at the top (connects to a T piece which is joining the carbs) and the second is below it (same is connected to a T piece connecting the bottom of the carbs) What pipes connect to these? I presume one is fuel feed and second is a breather pipe?

Also from the fuel tap on the tank - small pipe goes to top of carb- where does the main thicker pipe go on the carbs?

I can get the bike to start but it was revving to 7k which I presume is an air leak. If I put enough juice in the carbs it will start and idle normally

I didnít pull these apart so not sure where they go and I canít find the manual I had back in 2003.

Iíll take a few pics later if itís any help.

Re: Carburetor help

RPM sitting at 7k when I connect bottom pipe to the carbs. Normally that’s an air leak but am not sure, have everything good and tight. No air box on though.

Reckon this is gonna be fun getting running right.

Re: Carburetor help

All sorted now thank flock. Refitted the spring on the carbs and got the air box on and up she fired! Throttle was slow to return so disconnected it and lubed it up, free as a bird now.
Put a chain on it and brought it for a quick spin there tonight, back home and checked for leaks etc and back out for another gently spin up and down the road (joys of living in the middle of nowhere)
Now to finished putting it back together!!

Thanks for the help lads.

Re: Carburetor help

Yupp I think so but with either Gold or Silver decals. Imageworks in the UK will do a full set for me for £45
