exhaust dripping oil.

Justin Brownell /

Black oil is leaking from the exhaust. when I ride for a little bit (under 5 minutes) I will stop and my exhaust will start dripping extremely black oil? should I clean my exhaust? or is it something else?

thank you

Justin

its not oil, but unburnt gas (black from all the shit in your exhaust). check your spark plug, you are probably running way to rich, your your float isnt working right in your carb. jason

Check needle valve in your float.

inside he carb, there is a float, that controls a valve (a rubber tipped needle that closes a hole for gas to pass through the carb.) if this needle valve isnt stopping the gas, itll keep flowing, eventualy making its way to your exhaust. there is probably some crud built up where the needle goes. -jason
