Fuel valve

James A. Corbally /

What sort of problems can a dodgy fuel valve cause? I know that at worst, it'll prevent the bike running, but if it's not completely screwed, how would it show itself?


Re: Fuel valve

Your bike would act as if it's running out of gas all the time. Take the line off of the valve, put a can under it to catch the gas, and turn it on. If gas flows out in a steady stream it's good, if it don't, it ain't. Don't forget the fuel tank cap, it's got a vent in it to let air in to replace the gas that goes out. If air can't get in, the gas can't get out.
