This has been covered, but. Use regular or premium fuel. The mid grade has extra alcohols for increased octane rating and boils easier. Allso check the fuel leveling carb, it's probably slightly to high or gummy from the boiling fuel that was in it.

Gas running out of the carb indicates that the internal float valve is not shutting off the flow when the float bowl fills up. Might need cleaned; might need a new float valve assembly. Not cranking is an electrical problem. If you mean that the engine cranks over but doesn't start - then this could be a related carb problem. Take the bike to a reputable repair center near you.

not a throttle valve, but the float needle valve that shuts the fuel off with the float. the only cure for the sticking floay valve is to remove the carb and clean it.

I have a 2007 Roadstar 1700 and the cabuartor is flooding out gas into my air fillter from time to time but seems to be getting worse. How can I fix this myself.


Yes, it wil. It comes from the vapor recovery system. Avoid toping off your fuel tank. on fill ups.. Worked for me Good uck, Ned.

The dealer is not interested.
The bike is set up very lean to meet emissions standards. Any of them will benefit from larger jets. It's probably running too lean.

Carb puking gas


I had this same problem. What I discovered was the float needs adjusted on the carb. I set mine lower inthe bowl and it stopped the leaking. Reason for this happening is on hot days the fuel in the bowl will boil. This boiling action dumps in more fuel and the carb spits it out the air breather.
