Ok what air line are you speaking of. If you are speaking of the line that is attached to the bottom of the carb. That line is the float bowl over flow and if gas is coming out of it then you float is stuck open or you got a hole in the float and it filled with gas and doesn't float any more. Time for a carb cleaning and or repairs.

The engine oil is leaking from the frame thru the air filter of my yamaha virago model xv250(L)


Hello,

I have seen this problem on quite a few bikes, but not on yours.

Several things can cause this issue; dirty air filters, bad hoses, overfilled crankcase, rocker box gaskets, and other engine gaskets.

Maybe this info will give you a place to start.

Regards,

Oz

Won't idle without choke


The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Wont start at all


Find out where the leaking gas is coming from. It has to go from the gas tank to the carb. Just follow the line. It may just be a hose is off or split or a gasket in the carb needs replacing. Not garbage. Anything can be fixed cheaper than buying a new one

Probabilly a stuk carburettor float or needle.
Try to solve this problem to gently tap on the carburettor bodies. If this doesn't help you have to clean out the carburettors, and/or replace the float neeldes

Leaking injector


the throttle body on the right side underneath is a spring and shaft.. well its gone all bronzie looking which tells me its been leaking for a while however now theres fuel drops on it and its stained the casings were it drips off to. So whats this mean? is there a seal in there that lets go or is something rooted?,If you're bike is under warrantee, take it to the dealer! Otherwise first step to me clean the area so you can examine the components, check throttle body balance and TPS and look for any signs of a bad balance situation (one pipe more discolored than the other, etc.). If the basics check out then put in some gas (i.e. not diesel) Fuel injector cleaner and a tankfull of good gas combined with a long ride at speed. Next I would change my air and fuel filters, drain the tank through a coffee filter, checking for resedue and repeating the process of FI cleaner, good gas, and a long ride.,,,
