The floats in the bottom of the carb need resetting to the right place

you need to set them so that when you lift the float the fuel stops bent the bracket where the pivot pin is "BUT BE CAREFULL AS IT SNAPS EASIERLY"

hope this helps

Leaking fuel out of the flexible tube on bottom of carb. does the tube go anywhere or is it just a drain? Mine is just hanging and dripping fuel. Never done it before. 1998 yamaha big bear


The float needle in the carb is either worn or sticking open allowing fuel to keep pouring into the float chamber. The pipe is an overflow. Sometimes a simple tap with a screwdriver can loosen a piece of dirt from the needle and it will work again. If not, take the carb off, remove the float bowl, pull the retaining pin and take out the float itself. The needle will then come out. Check the top tapered edge for signs of wear and if you find any then replace it with a new one. If not then spray the needle "socket" with carb cleaner, fit an in-line fuel filter and reassemble. Should now be operational again.

Gas is leaking from behind front section of chain. what's back there that could be leaking and how do i fix it


Probably carbs overlowing, overflow pipes from the carburettor-s will hang out from below the engine, thus if the float valve sticks in the carb the fuel will overflow away from hot exhaust, you will have to follow pipe up to the offending carb remove float bowl and inspect and clean float valve, you will have to remove float and inspect the valve and its seating for dirt or varnishing which is caused when fuel is left for a prolonged time within the carb

Gas leaking out of small tube under Honda Valkiery. Could this be a float sticking open, if so best way to diagnose problem.


hi, it is more than likely float sticking,recently had the same problem, where the float needle had become worn as a result of old fuel sitting in the carbs, left a varnish on needles and seating, removed and cleaned, but still leaked best offf buying new needles first off as it is a big job to keep removing the carbs, if the bike runs ok, you could remove the overflow pipes from the float bowl identify which 1 is leaking and just replace the worn needle in that 1, as all the pipes go into 1 best find out which 1 it is so you know you have actualy fixed it when you put it back together, not a bad job to remove carbs though, any more help the name is paul, good luck
