If it is leaking from the vent tubes on the carb, the float or needle/seat is sticky. Sometimes this problem can solve itself after just a few minutes as fresh fuel disolves any tarnish but if not you might want to remove the float bowl and take a look.

Fuel drains out of tank when i start the engine

More that likely when you fell the lines to the carb got damaged or partially disconnected and are leaking or the carbs(if it has carbs) has a stuck float which would allow fuel to over fill the bowl and pour out. The petcock is a vacuum controlled unit so that's why it does not put out any fuel until the engine is started (which is when it leaks). The tank may need to be lifted up some to see where the leak is coming from. If the lines are ruptured then replace them. If the carbs are leaking, tap on the bottom of the bowls with the back side of a wooden hammer (or something soft) and sometimes that will make them stop leaking.

I left the bike in my garage and now it wont start, what could i do?

hi friend,
Step 112230_65x95_aspect.jpg
Move switch to ON position
Locate your dirt bikes OFF/ON, RUN/OFF, or START Switch. Use your finger to move the switch to the RUN, ON, or START position.
  • Step 212233_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn fuel switch ONLook on the side of your dirt bike near the engine and locate the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the lever to the "ON" position. Your dirt bike will not start if the fuel is turned off. This off switch helps prevent fuel leaks when your dirt bike is stored.
  • Step 312234_65x95_aspect.jpg Turn choke ONIf your dirt bike engine isn’t warm, you will need to turn the choke on to start the bike. Locate the choke lever near the engine on the side of your dirt bike, probably not far from the "FUEL ON/OFF" switch. Use your finger to move the choke lever to the on position. Once your dirt bike has started and the engine has warmed up, you will need to move the choke lever to the "off" position.
  • Step 412236_65x95_aspect.jpg Foot on kick start pegBend your knee and place your foot on the kick start peg while leaning your weight on your other foot. Stand slightly and push the kick starter all the way down with as much force as you can.
  • Step 512239_65x95_aspect.jpg Push all the way downIf the bike doesn't start after the first attempt to kick start it, try again. Remember to push the peg as far down as it will go with as much of your weight as possible.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • If your dirt bike has a four-stroke compression engine and won't start, release the compression valve and try starting it again.
    • Sometimes, the engine remains in a compressed position and cannot turnover until the pressure is released.
    • If your dirt bike is equipped with an electric-starter, but won't start, you can follow these steps and kick start it.
    • Remember: always wear safety equipment when operating a dirt bike or ATV.
    • You should at least wear a helmet, boots that cover your ankles, and a chest protector to avoid serious injury.
    • Always supervise children when operating motor vehicles.

    Petrol in my engine oil chamber why

    If you're getting fuel into your oil, your fuel delivery system is leaking. This problem is most common on carburated engines. The needle valve is not seating properly and when the engine is stopped, the carburator is flooding and the fuel is flowing into the engine. Once it gets into intake manifold, it seeps past the valves into the cylinder. Then it seeps past the rings into the crankcase contaminating the oil. If your bike is fuel injected, the same thing is happening because the fuel is pressurized by the fuel pump and your injector(s) are leaking fuel into the engine.

    On a carb equipped machine there us usually a petcock to turn the fuel off with. You can either turn the petcock off each time you turn the bike off (a good practice) or you can have the carburator repaired. Some late model bikes have a vacuum operated petcock that automatically turns the fuel off when the engine is stopped. If your bike is equipped with this type of petcock, the petcock could be defective or is positioned in the "prime" position. If you go into the carbs (I think your bike has two carbs), replace the needle and check the float height setting according to the manual in both carbs.

    If your bike is fuel injected, these devices are usually not easily servicable, simply replaced if they malfunction. You could try adding a bit of fuel injector cleaner designed for automotive use to your fuel. It may clean the injector (or needle in the case of carburators) and solve the problem. Otherwise, I'd probably take the bike to a repair shop.

    Good Luck!

    Fuel dumping

    Sounds like a vacum issue with the tank, try starting the bike with the filler open, when you shut the bike off of no more fuel leaking then you may have a vacum issue with the tank. I have seen cases where the vent tube in the tank is clooged and it wont allow the fuel to return to the tank properly.
