SOURCE: 2nd cylinder not getting hot and leaking fuel from it

Assuming the carbs were rebuilt properly, this sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending 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 look at the float chamber fo any problems such as stuck float, float level not set correctly, and the correct installation of the main jet.
..
Use an air hose to dry out the cylinder then install a new spark plug AFTER you make sure that the cylinder is getting spark. Be sure to balance and sync the carbs when finished.

SOURCE: i have petrol leaking out of the bottom of my bike but the bike hasn't cut out ??

Let me get ths straight, there is petrol leaking out of your bike, more or less between your legs and you are still riding it??? STOP, if you have no concern for yourself, consider othrs around you. Dont ride this motorcycle until you find and repair the problem. I would suspect a vent or fuel line but it could be the carb over flow or a hole in the tank. Please get it fixed before you ride again.

I have a 2003 freelander that smells of petrol whilst driving ive heard of this problem before but nwhat is the cause


Hi Paul:
The smell of petrol means that there is unburned fuel somewhere.
That is not good, and could be very bad, especially if it ignited.

I sincerely hope that you are not smelling this inside the vehicle while you are driving it.

Without running through a list of every possibility that I can think of, I'll make some suggestions.
1) When you smell the petrol, immediately pull over and shut the engine off. Lift the hood to access the engine and try to find the leak. Look at hoses, connections, fuel delivery components, gaskets. Look for wet spots, stains, wash marks where petrol may have moved dust and then evaporated.

Patience and a bit of time, and you should find it.

I'm also guessing that this is an external leak since you did not mention lack of power or backfiring.

Another possible is a failed hose connected to the fuel tank, or a faulty tank vent.

It's up to you. You're now detective Sherlock of the Petrol patrol.

There is a leakage problem of petrol in my bike (Suzuki Max100) when my bike stand's idle, after some time i can see the spilled petrol below the engine & wet surface of engine cover, recently i have...


Hi,

You firstly need to determined where the leak is coming from.

Turn the fuel off at the fuel tap. "Does it still leak?" if yes it may be that the tap is the issue.

Try and find the highest point where you can see petrol,

Is it around the hose joints? If it is you may need to replace and put clamps on the hose.

Is it leaking from the carburetor. If yes you may need pull the carburetor apart, clean it and possible put a new carburetor kit through it.

The main thing to remember is that the leak can only be between the tank and the carburetor.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Dave

2003 Yamaha Road Star 1600 leaks gas from underneath when I start it.


I take it when you say gas you are refering to petrol . gas leake ,don't use your bike untill its been repaired, many bikes have burst into flames through gas leakes .Remember petrol does not burn its the vapour given of that catches fire .

1994 Kawasaki ZZR-400 Leaks oil and doesnt start sometimes.


that box is called the air box, its where you engine breathes in its air. you say its leaking oil? these boxes are normally a bit oily but only really surface oil. If you can actually see liquid oil you have a problem with your petrol shut off. When the bike isnt running petrol will leak into the engine through the piston. When you start the bike all the petrol mixed with the engine oil will be pumped back into the air box. also check the level of the engine oil, if too much has been put in there then that can also be pumped back into the air box. If the petrol and oil has been mixing you must change the oil as petrol thins the oil and your bike could catch fire, the engine wear will be really bad.

Fuel in airbox


If your particular model has carbs instead of fuel injection, have the shop clean, balance and syncronize the carbs. Done properly, this will fix the problem.

Nsr 125 2000 problem with petrol


Hi!
Your description although very brief appears to relate to carburretor as overflow will only occur due to sticking float valve.
A clean up of internals required, attention carefully to float valve.
Good luck!
Oh if you respond positively with Fixya button it will be a great help?
