Leaky Carb -HELP

Pete Smith /

Have a yamaha chappy that began to bog down at high speeds last week after a recent shop tune up. Started tinkering with it last night and noticed fuel freely running out of carb from somewhere and down onto the exhaust and the rest was almost history. Question is whats the best guess of where its coming from? Im new with the tinkering thing so any suggestions would help

Re: Leaky Carb -HELP

Best guess is a leaking float valve or leaky float inside the carb.

Thanks, Is it necessary to tear the whole carb out? Any tricks I should keep in mind while doing so?

Re: Leaky Carb -HELP

E.Z. get new seels and check your hose going in to the carb

Re: Leaky Carb -HELP

take the bottom off the carb it should only be on by two screws then check the float and also make sure the pin is in the whole attatched to the float
