Question about 2006 Yamaha Virago 250
My wife just bought this bike. Rode it a couple of times and it was running well. Today when we came home there is a 10 in diameter gas puddle under the bike. upon inspection it is dripping out of the exhaust pipe. Petcock was left in the on position - tank was recently filled but not overfilled. Leak increases if the bike is stood upright. Thoughts - is it possible that the float is stuck but in that case the petcock osition should inhibit the flow - I would think.
Hi, Andrew and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
