  • carb problems

    2005 RS 80K pumpless
    Have been pumpless for about 40K and started having problems. Float seems to be sticking. Changed to grisly valve and it worked good for 10K. Went to hardware and when I came out there was a puddle under bike. Now gas pours out of carb. Removed carb and set float a little lower and took on a 80 mi trip no problems. Went to start it next day, and tank was drained dry. put a gallon in and went to gas station and shut it off to fill. Had trouble starting so we went home to fix it. Gas was again gushing out. What do I do next?

    It sounds like the oring on the grizzly valve seat is leaking by. Pull the seat part of the valve out and look for damage on the oring. You also said the tank was drained dry? did the gas drain on the ground or is it in the engine mixed with the oil. I would really be thinking about changing the oil.

      I think I got it. found some shavings in the grizzly and I know where they're from.
      Davej, Gas was on the ground, but thanks. its time for a change anyway.

        phew!! i was worried there that fuel was in the oil... needle and seat issues at the float cause the leakage
