04 suzuki 400 leaking fuel

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 04 suzuki 400 for my wife and after i got it home the garge had a bad oder of fuel. i narrowed to down to the bowl drain. it does not drop fuel to the floor,but the bottom of the hose that exits the carb bowl is wet. the screw that drains the bowl is tight and seems to work properly. what is the fix to get it to stop seaping fuel???

thanks

I would take the carb off and give it a thorough cleaning clean all the jets and concentrate on the needle valve under the float. If it is worn it will need to be replaced. The needle valve shuts off the fuel when the float raises. If it is not seating properly fuel will continue to fill the bowl and come out the overflow.

If the fuel valve on the bottom of the gas tank is in the prime position;it can allow fuel to overfill the bowl causing leakage.Hope this helps
