If there is any gas flowing out of a Mountain Bike you have serious problems.

In reality you have a Motorcycle, not a Mountain Bike.

It's almost surely a stuck float valve. Try banging on the float bowl with a rubber mallet, but not too hard. You should really take off the bowls and clean them out, then replace the float valve pins and check the floats for any holes or for sticking action. Sometimes the floats will stick open due to rust gunk or old gas gummed up in there. I use Sea Foam fuel additive to help keep the carb clean. You could try running a half bottle of that through a bit, but I'd start by getting that bugger unstuck first.

Gas leaking through overflow


Your carbs need cleaning and setting,, the needle and seats are what controls the flow of gas into the float bowls... the floats movement (up and down) regulate the movement (opening and closing) of the needle and seat

When i turn the fuel on to start the bike gas pours out the clear tube that comes from the carb to under the bike some were is this line dis conected or broke or is it something more


it's probably just your overflow from the float. it doesn't connect to anything, it just let the fuel overflow come out when your float level is high. if you turn on the fuel petcock and it starts pouring out, your float needle is sticking. clean the carb and the float needle valve assembly and see what happens.

Gas leaking from hose that is under tank that is not for gas flow


is it an overflow from the carb? gas will only be in one of 2 tubes and they are the fuel line from the tank and the carb over flow. unless you have an electronic fuel pump then tubes go from tank to pump to carb. if its coming from the overflow then you are getting too much fuel into the carb float chamber. you may have a sticky float. thy getting some Berrymans B12 fuel additive and putting double the doseage in the tank. run engine til hot then leave it to stand overnight. this should break down any gum/varnish that has built up in the system

has this been in storage thru winter?

Float hieght for 1984 IT 490


not sure of the exact height, but if you hold the carb level with fuel hose attached and pushing float up with finger, turn on petcok and slowly lower the float until it is just above horizontal. at this point, gas should start to flow out of the needle & seat.

if float turns off gas too soon, then engine will starve.

if float doesn't turn off gas, then it will flow out of the carb overflow tube.

Gas Leak via Overflow


The usual culprit is a blocked vent tube. Verify it's open. The usual indicator is either a pressure release when you open the gas cap, or a vacuum "sucking" noise when opening it first thing in the morning. On a carb equipped bike, the carb overflow lines will leak, but in a fuel injected bike like yours, it'll be out the overflow vent. The next time it begins leaking, open the gas cap. It should stop immediately as pressure inside is released. Good luck.
