Fcr Leak at drain valve when bike is on side!

Recommended Posts

Tipped the bike on it's side to do some minor maintenance and cleaning. When I did this, fuel leaks out of the bottom of carb at the drain valve. Does not leak when bike is upright. BSR carb did not do this if I recall. Also have IMS 4 gallon and yamaha non vacuum petcock.

Yes. A FCR will leak if you tip the bike on its side. It's designed to do that. If you turn your petcock off then the fuel will stop leaking once the float bowl is empty.
