Fuel coming out of left hand overflow pipe.

Post by MRLZXR400 » Fri Nov 23, 2018 5:02 pm

I have fuel dropping out of the left hand (as you sit on the bike) fuel overflow pipe.
I've read this can be dirt causing the float to stay open or a failed float O ring.
Has anyone had a similar issue and cure please?

Thanks

It's a damaged float needle, or dirt in the sealing section, or the o-ring around the fuel strainer is broken.

Carbs apart, replace o ring and float needle will cure it.
