Question about Motorcycles
I do a lot of small engine repairs, and commonly when the fuel is cut on and the carb starts to leak, your float is stuck open. you said that it has been sitting for a while., How long? Over a period of a couple months, condensation will start to build up in your tank and carb float bowl, with this happening it starts to build up corrosion and electrolysis. To fix this problem :: 1 drain your tanke completely. 2 remove the carb float bowl from one or both carbs ( however many your bike has) ((DON'T LOSE THE GASKET) 3 carefully remove the pin holding the float in, and when you remove it be careful, there is another little pin with a rubber tip attached to the float 4 clean them thoroughly, pins and float, 5 clean inside float housing 6 Reassemble, carefully in exact order you took it apart. 7 fill tank with fresh gas and add 2 ounces of STABIL water remover and fuel treatment. This should fix your problem.. Let me know how it goes
