07 carb fuel leak?
Hey guys, need some feedback. Have a 07 RoadStar w/carb when, 3-5 minutes after hot shut down, the carb pisses fuel out the bottom, back of the air filter housing, at the drip hole opening. Gas then runs along the back of the rear push rod base, along the engine case, then onto the ground, leaving a silver dollar size wet spot on the ground. This happens a lot!
I've been back to the Yamaha dealer 3 times about this and they have changed the needle assy. for the float and cleaned out the carb. The problem continues. They are now telling me that this is "normal" for hot engines having been shut down because the fuel boils in the carb and expands, burping fuel out as I have described.
Are they giving me a line of crap or are others having this same issue or have heard of this problem? Thanks for any input received.
