Yes, precisely. Or a leaking float needle seat. If gas was dripping out the airbox, it was also likely dripping into the cylinder, so you will need to check for gas smell at the oil filler neck...probably you should assume the oil is contaminated with a substantial amount of gas...not good for bearings.....AT ALL!As per title, is this a symptom of a stuck float? .........
I had this problem and it was an o-ring. See red arrow -- I replaced it and all was well.As per title, is this a symptom of a stuck float? I can crack the bowl and see if it moves freely, but do I have to or is this normal if petcock is not closed? Fuel was dripping out air filter.
Hey OTD,Rocky - your comment on trailering may help me - I am a new TW200 owner and noticed today while trailering that fuel was dripping out of the float bowl drain hose. I stopped to check the tie down and noticed a drip that stopped soon after I pulled over. The drain screw was tight and the fuel petcock was in the on position. Appears to only drip when trailering - not when stopped or riding. Bike runs good before and after. What gives?
So, engine started but took 30-40 kickstarts (no electric start on mine anymore). Bike ran fine once it fired up. Happened a second time a week later, I left petcock open, fuel on floor. Same problem starting. Then ran fine.
Twice now when out on a longer ride, I've stopped and turned off engine. Pulled out maps, etc. on a short brake. Didn't turn off petcock. When I went to kickstart, wouldn't turn over and sounded flooded. Had to roll start.
Oil appears normal coloration. Carb was cleaned 1 mo ago by prior owner, this is a 2014. If float or needle leaking, wouldn't fuel be coming out bowl drain hose as well as the air filter?
Partzilla.com for TW parts.Thanks gang. I'll make sure float moves freely. I can't quite figure out where the float seat is on the service manual update. I see the float needle and pin, and looking at Lazy Man's Teikei (TK) Carb Cleaning post just assuming the float needle seats into the ...seat? So pull the pin, out slides the needle and the seat slides out next?
Last, where to get reliable replacement seat or O-ring. Dealer? Not on Procycle.
