I have a 98 YZ400f, and just recently the carb started leaking out of the overflow tube when the bike was sitting. (just a tiny drip tho, a little puddle on the floor in the morning)

ive already took the float valve out and reset it to the manual spec's, and gave it a through cleaning, but it is still slightly leaking. :thumbsup:

so what im asking is, should i replace the float valve? (or is there something simple i can do to fix it?)

Or should i just get a new fuel cock on the gas tank, and stop the gas flow that way? (because it has never shut off right)
Because the bike runs great the way it is now.


Thanks, Michael
