fuel leak

Jason Luther /

would a bad carb bowl gasket be enough for it to drip while just sitting there? it doesnt drip much, but it seems to be coming from the bowl. the float needle appears to be fine since it doent flood or anything when i ride it. i dont have much of a moped budget and dont want to just buy replacement parts if i dont need them (obviously). thanks -jason

It would leak as long as there was gas in the bowl. Try removing the gas and see if it leaks from some where else.

well, the thing is my petcock doesnt shut all of the way off, it will still trickle when turned off. so if i remove the gas from the bowl, it would just fill up again. is the fuel level in the bowl normaly above the gasket line? or is too much gas being let in?
