Question about Harley Davidson XL 883C Sportster Custom Motorcycles
The small fuel line goes up maybe to the tank? When fuel is on the small line leaks gas. What dose it go to?
Hi Roy, that is an overflow line that should never be attached to anything and points to the ground. Have nice day.

yes there is a tube that goes on it. It hangs straight down about an inch or two past the botom of the 4 wheelers frame. It is for a overflow of gas, which is usally caused by either dirt in the carb holding the float to high and allowing the gas to just run straight thru and out the bottom of the carb or a bent or maladjusted float setting. But since you said it just started, i would suggest this. I have fixed many and many bikes by simply removing the carb bottom and cleaning it with carb cleaner. It onlty takes a small piece of dirt between the float needle to keep the needle from making a good seat in the carb. Clean it well Please be carefull and keep the carb well away from your face as to not get any blowback of cleaner in your eyes(IT BURNS) This should fix your probblem
Let me know

Replace the petcock. The rubber diaphragm is ruptured. I'd also bet your fuel mileage dropped cause the ruptured diaphragm is allowing raw fuel to be sucked into the intake manifold.

SOURCE: gas leak from carb drain hose
I had this same problem on my DRZ-110.
I took apart the carburator to clean everything out, but when i re-assembled it it started to leak gas out of the drain hose. Then i found out that the problem was that one of my gaskets were torn and were letting air in the drain which prevents it from being a vacuum, therefore causing gas to leak out.
I would first check the float & make sure it isnt stuck, then i would check all of the gaskets and make sure they arent torn, & replace the ones that are, even if theyre slightly damaged they can still let in air.
Your carb has to be 100% sealed & vacuumed to prevent any leaks & for it to work fine, so get those gaskets checked out

not that familiar w/Yamaha,but disconnected vacuum hoses may connect to fuel petcock at tank.I know Honda uses a system that only allows fuel to flow when vacuum is supplied.
