Question about Motorcycles
Kids were riding in the wood and quad just died...noticed oil injection bolts loose and oil was leaking.. i figured i schorched the piston so thats why i replaced the entire top end....from wrist pin to spark plug..... sucker wont start
If its for the fuelcock, i would replace the fuelcock with a manual one. Check if you have fuel to the carb if not you know you need a petcock.

This sounds to me like a carb float being 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 and float needle are 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.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

is it an overflow from the carb? gas will only be in one of 2 tubes and they are the fuel line from the tank and the carb over flow. unless you have an electronic fuel pump then tubes go from tank to pump to carb. if its coming from the overflow then you are getting too much fuel into the carb float chamber. you may have a sticky float. thy getting some Berrymans B12 fuel additive and putting double the doseage in the tank. run engine til hot then leave it to stand overnight. this should break down any gum/varnish that has built up in the system
has this been in storage thru winter?

Hi Small vacuum tube goes to the inlet manifold, safety device to prevent fuel flow when not in use.
If you literally **** on it it will start and run!!
