Fuel Problems .

Post  gus on Thu Sep 14, 2017 11:00 am

I don't understand how the carb overflow outlet on carbs is higher than the inlet to the pistonsĀ  .
Ive had 3 bikes which have filled the sump with fuel over a three month period .

Probably to avoid some sort of syphon effect.

Just like washing machines (I don't know what made me say that!!) Shocked

Lack of use . Eventually the fuel gets past the fuel tap and needle and seats . After it happening 3 times I have disconnected the fuel lines .Should have done it BEFORE I moved .
One bike was in the lounge room . (don't ask ). I decided to remove the infected oil with out moving the bike . I didn't realise 4ltrs of oil and 4 ltrs of petrol creates quit a bit of pressure .80% missed the bucket . Evil or Very Mad
