I have a KTM 2001 300exc that is leaking fuel from the breather tube that comes from the top of the float bowl. :scream: Does anybody have an idea what is causing this? How do I fix it?:(

You may need to set your floats. Refer to you owners manual for setting specs. When you go to adjust the floats, you will find that there is no mechanical adjustment. You basically gently bend the small tab between the floats to make up or down corrections in the setting.

The float is probably just stuck. Just pull the carb off and give it a good cleaning before you start to change the float height.

Do I need to "set my floats" if gas pours ut of the tube when the bike is on its side? It seems that whenever i fall, gas pours out of the carb. What is the result, performance-wise of doing this. Thanks
