Tomos Sprint Leaks Gas

My 99 Tomos has a brand new carb float and needle and valve and it still leaks fuel all over the place from time to time.

I have a really cheap way to fix mine. I just pick up the front end, and drop it. Two or three times, and the leak stops like magic. I guess im knocking the float loose or something.

I found out when it pissed me off after the 130 dollar repair resulted in a repeat perfomance. I see no other adverse effects from the pounding, and will keep an eye out for anything shaking loose. I think its insane that a brand new moped acts like this, even after a repair. Now, could be a shoddy repair, but it is a reputable shop and the guy is recommended. Other than this, the bike runs great and only has 555 km. on it.

Anyone else ever heard of this?

You will blow the headlight if you keep doing it that way.

Yes.

The little widget hooked up to the float that pushes up, vertically into this little hole (it has a little triangle-shaped rubber piece on the end) is prolly getting stuck.

That means either a bit of crud, the pin holding the float might be loose or (and I've seen this) the float might be either incorrect, on in some really screwed up cases...upsidedown, althought I doubt that in this one.

Take the float bowl off, and clean out the hole that weird little pin-thingie goes into, that should do the trick - a lotta folks miss that when cleanin a DelLorto carb.
