2006 CRF230F Carb drain hose leaking
Posted February 06, 2011 - 05:21 AM
The problem is, fuel keeps leaking from the carb drain hose. I never noticed this before so I'm not sure if I did anything to cause it.
From what I've read it sounds like a stuck float. Any suggestions on fixing this? I was thinking about spraying carb cleaner in the fuel line and let it sit for a while and then tap the carb with the handle of a screw driver.
Wondering if I should just bite the bullet and take it to the dealer and have them rebuild it. Any suggestions?

Either you bent the float tang, causing it to be too high
Just curious how I could have bent the float tang. When I replaced the stock jet, the needle jet holder came out and i gently screwed it back in and then installed the new main jet. The slide and fuel needle went in smooth.
Yeah, I tried tapping with the bowl full of fuel with no luck. I was hoping the carb cleaner through the fuel line would do the trick.

Jetting really made a noticeable difference in throttle response and overall smoothness. Now I have to wait for the snow to melt before taking her for a test run.
