Question about 2008 Benelli Pepe 50
Posted by Anonymous on
I own an Andretti M50 and I had 2 different gas leak problems, and neither was a stuck float.
- the gas filter that comes with the bike is a 2-piece screw together unit and the gasket between the 2 pieces leaks gas down onto the cylinder!
I replaced with a $3 one piece from Pep Boys.
- the second leak the gas just poured onto the ground. It was caused by poor design and tight tolerances where the fuel line attaches to the carb. The fuel line would get guillitoned every time you hit a bump by the engine swinging the carb tight against the frame. I rotated the carb in its manifold away from the frame. (you have to cut the nubs off the carb manifold to rotate it).

I had the same problem. the drain hose on the carb is supposed to have a little valve in it. it is meant to drain your carb when you winterize, HOWEVER, they fall off and fuel runs out. Screw a small bolt into the end of the hose and bingo- it runs.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. It was exactly what was needed."
Your Float bowl is stuck. Sometimes it gets a bi of dirt in it and keeps it from seating to turn off the fuel. You need to remove the bottom of the float bowl. This is easiest done by removeing the carb from the bike because you have 4 screws to undo on the float bowl. Really is pretty easy to do.

tap on the float bowl with the handle of a screwdriver, there is probably just something small making the float stick a little and always always always turn your fuel valve off when the bike is parked.

If the carb is leaking fuel and the leak is not at the hose fitting,
