Carburetor leaking

Recommended Posts

Yep i wouldnt play with float hieght. Not sure why so many people suggest that. Float may be stuck, more likely particulate suck in needle/seat. Also check needle for a wear ring. If its worn spend the 40 bucks and replace. If its particulate and lots in bowl you may want to clean fuel system.

So I took the carb off, cleaned the jets, float n needles ...looked at the spark plug again and it looked fouled so I cleaned it off then put it back in and the carburetor and the bike all back together . Fired it up started and idled fine, rode about a block hit every gear fine stopped and took off again and it started cracking and sputtering. Sounds to me like a fouled plug again? Could it possibly be my coil wire? Or try a new spark plug? Or may my air oil mixture screw be set wrong? To me something is making it run either to rich or to lean? Any advice? Please help haha thanks! ??!

If you just turn your fuel on and let the bike sit for a few mins does your carb leak again? If you turn fuel on and fire up and ride it wouldnt start overfilling for a min or 2 so it would run fine at first. Was your carb clean? Is your gass good?
