Any fixes to leaking gas from carb?
I have a '99 R* 1600. I came across a post "07 carb fuel leak" which detailed gas leaking from the carb into the air box.
I too have been experiencing this issue and am wondering if there have been any updates in other threads for a fix.
My problem also seems to be heat related, as it only seems to leak (noticeably) when its hot. Its was only about 85 today though. Today I heard the gas sizzle when it hit the hot motor. Not cool. In addition, this occurred today directly after filling up. Rode about four miles, then about two minutes of idle, before shutoff.
I have had several other occasions when there was a strong smell of gas after shut down regardless of how much fuel is in the tank. I can see on the right side of the motor where gas has obviously pooled and evaporated.
Only one time did I get a puddle of gas on the ground and that was after a few hundred miles of riding. didn't give it much time sitting at fill ups so only noticed it after getting off and stretching.
