Is it poss to remove the float bowl while the carbs are fitted to the bike? I am fairly sure back in the eightys the float was addjustable, to controll the fuel level by bending slightly the metal tab on the float, when the bowl is removed check the level of fuel in the bowl and compare it to that in the others, the aim is to make the fuel flow stop at the correct level in the carb(by bending the float tab) while the bowl is off turn on the fuel push the float all the way up check if the fuel flow stops, also check the condition of the sealing washer around the float needle seating.

Petrol pissing out through air box bike not starting

hi, you dont say what bike this is, however the main reason for this would be at least 1 float valve not closeing, has the bike stood for a while, classic symptom, reason for not starting would be overfueling, normaly you will find a drain screw on each carb with a pipe for fuel to overflow, this would then be oviouse which carb is giving the problem as the fuel flows out of the problem carb overflow, your overflow tubes which are located inside the float chamber may be blocked, i would think that in this case a strip down of the carbs to check and clean as ness would be in order, in the same way the fuel will run out through the airbox it will also run into the engine, causing it not to run

sounds like you need to strip and clean the carb and check the float needle is ok and the float hight is correct and test it does float in a cup of fuel ! as it could be flooding ! if you have dirt in the carb then clean the fuel tank out also ! these bikes are designed to run at any angle virtually !!

it's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

it sounds like your carbs are gummed up you can try running it with some High octane fule and spraying some carb cleaner into the intakes and see if that clears it up, or take off the carbs and clean them with the carb cleaner, you also may check to see if your running to lean (not enough fuel) as when the choke is on you are restricting air flow to give more fuel and less air i am willing to bet if you run the carb cleaner through it you may be allright, you may want to change the oil and filter for safety sakes as well

Carb leaking

You have a carb float stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb and clean it with a spray carb cleaner. Be sure main jet is clear. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb.

Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter. Turn the gas on, wait a moment for the float bowl to fill with gas then give it a try.

How long since the carb was serviced? Has the bike ran properly since the service?

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
