I started my 4 fitty today and noticed fuel pouring out the tube at the bottom of the carb. HELP! :scared: :scared: It stops if I turn off the fuel but starts draing out when I turn it back on. I pulled the jets and they are not clogged and there wasn't anything unusual in the carb. Has anyone had this prob? What is the remedy?

Most likely your needle valve is dirty and not closing. Was the bike sitting for a long time without use?

a friend had this problem once and we picked up the back end a few feet and dropped it hard on concrete and it solved the problem. But we were out riding at the time and getting creative.

You may have some dirt in your float needle/seat that is not allowing it to close off.

Is your float bowl drain screw there? Is it tight? Sorry for the dumb question, but it's a possibility.

That is what I was just going to ask him, cause it happened to my buddies raptor.
