Is this typical of a float leak

Postby nick9one1 » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:13 pm

There seems to be a pool of fuel appearing in one of my carbs.

Is this typical of a float needle or float seat oring leak?

Leaky float valves seems to be a common issue with old ZZRs. If you have
three carbs dry and one carb flooded, that is the most likely cause.

I can't speak from experience because I haven't had problems with mine (yet!).
