XR50 - Fuel leaking question??

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I was working on my son's forks and had the gas tank off. After I fixed the forks and put everything back together, the fuel is leaking from the release hose. Not a little, but a constant drip. I have never seen this before. Has anyone encountered this before? I hope it's something minor but I'm not very mechanical so please help.

:cry: :cry:

Hi, check to make sure the needle is not stuck or getting caught up in its bore anywhere. Also the tab on the float where the needle clips on to could be bent, I had a similar problem on my XR80. Good luck.

Thanks I fixed it. I found debris or dirt in the pin where the float pin stops the fuel coming from the gas tanks so it kept pouring in.

Had to clean it all out. Working fine now.
