1500 gas problem

Post by dpettit1996 » Wed May 11, 2011 1:28 pm

Started my 1500 after sitting all winter. It started right up, but gas is coming out the hose on the under side of the bike.

Check your fuel shut off valve by the gas filler. That will go bad and the gas will drain down the hose to the unders side of the bike. You can get a rebuild kits for them. One place is JCwhitney to get them but I can't remember the other places.

Look at the vacuum fuel shut off valve under the gas door and see if it is leaking there. It's right in front of the gas cap.
