  • 2002 Roadstar Carburetor Leaking Fluid

    Hi All, I have an '02 Roadstar with CA emissions. I put an aftermarket air intake cone on the carburetor after rebuilding it. (new pilot (37.5) and main jet (172.5)) I backed the PMS out 2 1/2 turns, and also made sure the float bowl gasket was seated properly. It started right up and I took it out for a test ride, but when I got back I noticed a steady drip of clear fluid coming from the carb, even after the engine was turned off. It smelled a little gassy, but it wasn't pure gas. It was almost like when you see water coming out of a cars tailpipe, but it was coming from the carb. Anybody have any ideas of what this could be?

    Remove 172.5 main jet and replace with 167.5 first.....

    Only gas could be leaking from that point....

          I usually do the muffler belt first. But to each their own.......

        Ha! Those are both funny. We tell our apprentice electricians to hold the ends of the wires pointing up so the electrons don’t spill out. Then we send them to get the wire stretcher....
