Hey guys! Need your troubleshoot expertise please.........
When I bought my bike from a friend of mine, the bike had sat in his garage for over two years, the gas tank was severly rusted and it eventually had a hole on the tank, but other than that the bike was in excellent condition...it only had 500+ miles on it.
When I bought it, I took it to Yamaha dealership to have a new tank put on and carb cleaned & other maintenance things to get it running again.
But ever since then, gas keeps leaking when I park it after riding. I took it to Yamaha, mechanin initialy thought it was the oring...but it turned out it wasnt...... and while it was their it didnt even leak at all according to the mechanic.
mechanic said since the tank had been badly rusted ... it might be causing something in the carbs to clog up and that maybe why its leaking after I park it. His advise was to just ride it around...and it shuld clear it up after a few tank refills...... but it still leaking as of today. I just uploaded a pic of the leak (waiting for mods to approve it)..will attach it to this thread soon as they do.
Is there some sort of fuel additive I can use???? Otherwise Ill have to get the carbs cleaned again.
