Question:
Fuel will not flow into my RS rack either by the tank or an IV gravity feed. I am using clear hose so I can see that little to no fuel is moving. I have checked both sources and they flow fine. Carbs are a couple years old on a GS1100e. Bought the bike from a guy who says he would run in it every couple months but did not ride it regularly.

Any ideas as to why I can only get a trickle of fuel into the carbs?

When the bike is running there is only a small trickle (starts and stops) of fuel flowing which results in starvation after about 60 seconds. With the IV no flow at all.

Cheers.

What is an "RS rack" ?

When the float bowls are full, the flow should stop via the float and needle valve.

What happens if you open the drain screw on the bottom of the carb bowls ?
Have you tried to run it with the petcock on REServe (if it has that setting)?

Depending on your definition of "a trickle", with everything hooked up and the drain screws open that might be normal.
