Hello everyone-

I can't figure out why fuel is pissing out of that hose onto the ground whether the cock is turned to fuel or reserve. The bike rides fine, but keeps leaking fuel whether I am stopped and idling or riding down the road. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks for the help!

Stuck float valve! Check to make sure the float posts are not broken. You don't mention what year or where you are in the line of ownership so it is possible someone was in the carb before you and mucked something up.

Stuck float valve, certainly one of the easiest to diagnose problems with our TWs.
Fairly easy to fix too. Very occasionally tapping the carb body can free up the stuck needle valve but usually replacement is warranted. Use forum search feature to research old threads elaborating the necessary repair procedure in detail. Be careful driving float pivot pin out only in direction of the indicating arrow.
