I was getting fuel in my oil (2003 YZ450F) and the guys here told me to turn off my gas when I was not ridding. OK, so I did. Still getting gas in my oil. I disco the fuel line from the carb and guess what, the dang petcock still flows fuel when turned off!!

Replace it? Or is there a fix for it?

I have the same problem, a pair of small vise grips is doing the trick for now. Just pinch the line when you put the bike up but fixing it the right way would be best.

Unless your talking about an STD, that's 1 word, should be "My petcock valve leaks fuel." Not that I'm a grammer cop, just that your treading on having the post baned.
