Re: Cag leaking gas from overflow tube HELP

It's not too drastic of a change, but I basicallly did it for fun. I'm going to be working on it again in a while, see if I can get the noise down even firther. Just takes some working on and experimenting.

attaching a bottle on that line would be bad - then all you have is a bottle underneath your bike, slowly filling up with gas. I believe for the boost bottle trick, you actually need to drill a hole in your carburetor for a threaded fitting to attach the hose. As I've never done one, I don't know exactly how it's done,

Re: Cag leaking gas from overflow tube HELP

Clean your carburetor, readjust the float forks in the bowl by bending them slightly downward like 1/8". These carbs are finicky, gotta set 'em up just right or they leak .....

Re: Cag leaking gas from overflow tube HELP

My cag leaks from the overflow unless the bikes running, I've bent the forks checked for debris and all that jazz. I want to run a line from the overflow back into my fuel tank, through the tank cap. What would be the Best method of doing so? I'm determined and handy, pls guide me!

Re: Cag leaking gas from overflow tube HELP

The gas is to high in the float bowl, sometimes the shut off needle inside the float bowl leaks and does not shut off and gas keeps running faster than you use it so it goes up and out the overflow tube, running a return line won't help. Stop the leak.

sometimes the float forks get way too bent out of shape to properly shutoff too....I ve seen some really bent forks that made me wonder what that person was thinking how they thought it was gonna work like that.....LOL

Re: Cag leaking gas from overflow tube HELP

Where exactly is it leaking at? From the line? Where the line meets the carb? Or where it goes INTO the gas tank?
