Hello,

This sounds like a Float issue. If the Float becomes saturated with fuel, it will be too heavy to stop fuel flowing into the carburetor, hence fuel coming out the air filter. It also could be an adjustment of the Float. One other thing that could cause your problem is the needle/seat. Check for excessive wear.

Hope this helps. If you find this information useful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

If you need more help with this issue, please post a Comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Regards,

Oz

Hello my cpi Aragon GP 125. Model 2012 when been on a run sometimes the carb spits petrol back through the air filter.l have to disconnect the air filter to empty it, then it will start again.??


Hi, Bryan spitting is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is set to lean.

Small amount of gas in rear air filter compartment.Changed out old degraded foam air filters for new K&N Filters


The carbs spit back a little fuel normally and sometimes they'll flood over and stop flooding as the engine shakes but the air filter should dry off as the motor runs. or the gas is real old? Does the bike run OK?

Bogs down & spits back through carb.


Sounds like you may need a valve job. Have you been keeping the valve clearances adjusted? It's important to do that on a four-stroke engine. Check your compression to find out if the valves are ok.

Spitting and sputtering


mine did the same, I found out that the high speed jet was clogged, I pulled the fuel line off the filtor(going to the carb), stuck the line into a mixture of half gas half carb cleaner, I fanned it up and in 2 or 3 minutes it started running well, hope this helps.

Powermate 5000 leaks gas from the air filter..not sure how it's getting into the air filter?


My Coleman Generator 5000w with a Tecumseh 10hp story. Mine engine finally did die before I pulled the carburator off.
On mine the float was defective. It was full of fuel! I repaired the hole in it. I removed the air filter and saw fuel pouring out the side so much that I had a jar to catch it. I removed the carburator and took the nut off the bowl to examine the float. Then I removed the pin holding the hinged end of the float. Carefully pulled it out with the needle valve attached. When I removed the needle valve (just slides on mine) it was free to test. I tested by shaking it near my ear and I could hear the fuel inside the float. Mine was brass or copper. I wiped mine off with a napkin and finally found the hole. I drained the fuel by polking a needle sized hole and removed the fuel. I then soldered the hole shut with using just electronic 60/40 resin solder and a small soldering iron. Mine works like a champ now.
