99wr400 Float leaking
Posted November 17, 2006 - 08:38 AM
I got a leaking float chamber. I believe the the problem was from the o-ring on the float needle housing, I replaced this with another o-ring from the hardware store since the stealership wanted $50 for the needle, needle housing, oring, and screw. I have placed the needle in the housing and blew through it and it is air tight so I believe the needle and the seating are in good shape. I have checked the float and it too is air tight. I have measured the 9mm that the manual states for the float spacing. I've double checked and made sure the float isn't restricted or stuck. when I replaced the o-ring I assembled the carb back teh way the clymer manual instructed me to. I placed the carb on the bike in the same fashion and turned the fuel on. I watched with the drain hose off to look for leaks. waited a few minutes, no leaks, kicked her over, she went over first kick, Let her run with the choke and went to grab my jacket and as I was coming back to the bike she bogged out and died and I saw the float drain leaking gas. Please give me your opinion on what I shoud do. I'm off to the stealership to buy the OEM assembly for $50 and I'd like to make sure that does it, I don't want to be shotgunning my bike with expensive parts thinking it is the fix. So please chime in and let me know.
