Yamaha Grizzly 600 leaking gas

This 4-wheeler was sitting in the garage, and had been so for like 3 yrs prior to me taking it out this last summer. It is leaking gas, it gets really hot and smells like gas, i had a friend clean the carborator because it was backfiring and running poorly, it was running better, but I am always putting gas in it, and the problem is getting worse. Any ideas on what the problem can be?

If the carb was really cleaned out, then i would suspect the float is not set properly (where #14 in the pic meets #19, assuming it is adjustable), the float (#14) has a hole in it and is no longer "floating" which turns off fuel to the bowl when it raises #19 (needle valve) or the needle valve is not connected properly to the float (common problem when reassembling a carb.

one way to check is to remove the float bowl and with your finger, push the float up (it pivots) and turn on the petcock. if fuel still pours out the needle valve, then the needle valve may not be connected properly to the float or the needle valve is worn. if it doesn't pour out, then i would replace the float as it is no longer floating (one way to also tell is if you see fuel inside the float if its plastic) to turn off fuel or adjust the float tang (assuming the float is brass. if its plastic, then there is no adjustment). good luck.

I have a 1990 yamaha fzr 600 that doesn't idle good when its cold and if its sits and I try to take off on a hill it cuts out like its not getting enough fuel but after its running it will go up hill...

Hi, Kevin_wri799 and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.

Location of alternator on 700 grizzly 4 wheeler i

The altenator is usually 3 phase. It is unlikely that 2 phases have gone down, more likely the diode pack has failed. Check the rectifier/regulator before taking the engine to bits. It may save some time and money on spares you don't need!
