Not KLR but Kawasaki Carb issue
I have a 1997 KLF 400 ATV.
Having some carb issues and rather than registering at another forum figure it's likely simple and can get an answer here. Carb looks very similar to the KLR.
Couple of weeks ago I noticed a puddle of fuel under the ATV. Checked and found it was coming out of carb drain tube. Tried to tighten, loosen& tighten, the drain screw which didn't fix the problem.
I used the quad briefly a couple of days ago. No issues. Today I check the quad and there is a large puddle of fuel under it.
So I'm figuring I've got a stuck float so the carb has to come apart.
Also concerned that fuel may have leaked into the cylinder, although that side of the carb looks to be higher than the air box side.
Never had this carb apart. The ATV only has 2000km on it.
Any enlightenment appreciated.
