I was having same problem and was so scared that it was going to be expensive . I paid 120 bucks to a guy to take carbs apart and clen them really good and reseat all the internals .. the floats get stuck in this bike ,also make sure you do not leave the choke on it will flood and leak out of the air box ,this is scary but not to worry just get the bike running and remember after each ride let the bike idle down for a minute and do not give it any throttle . for that minute .. hope this helped you

Carbs need to be serviced by a professional. That's the only way. Needle and seat are not closing properly.

Why is fuel constantly leaking either through air filter or bottom of float bowl?

Hi Julie:
It sounds like the problem may be with the fuel that you are using.
Make sure the tank is drained, rinsed, all stale fuel and contaminates removed, and fresh fuel used.
If you're going to be leaving the mower for extended periods between use, it's a good idea to fill the fuel tank with premium fuel.
I always fill the tank after mowing to minimize evaporation and condensation.
Hope this helps.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

The ONLY way IN for fuel is the Float Valve, Now if petrol is coming out of the float bowl, then, the Valve must be faulty OR the Float mechanism, or spring, itself.

hello, sounds like you need to set floats in carb, if you have already done that, buy new floats, sounds like one or more of your floats are bad, when you cleaned carbs, did you check and see if any gas was inside the floats, sometimes they will get a pinhole in them, then they will fill with a little gas, and they wont turn gas off, because they cant float in the gas, the carbs are letting gas run through intake down into motor, always turn gas off when not riding your bike that might help a little,

You need to get some new float needles, and have the carbs cleaned and the float heights set correctly.

it sounds to me like the carb float levels are out of adjustment and it is overfilling the bowls,or,the needle valve seats are worn and leaking,which will allow fuel to continue filling the bowls even though it looks like they are closed,remove the carbs from the bike,remove the bowls,turn the cabs upside down close the floats(push them right to the top,this simulates full bowls)then blow throgh the fuel inlet pipe,if you can hear air escaping from around the seats they are faulty,also check that the seats themselves are tight in the carb body,i dont know why but gsxr carbs seem to shake the valve seats loose..hope this helps

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.

Carburator leaking gas out of over flow tube

Sounds like a stuck float. try gently tapping on side of carb near bottom where float assembly is located to see if it frees up if it doesn't you will need to remove and clean your carb and check your float adj.
