Looks like your carrying about as much fuel as the time you did when you ran out at Urbenville, hopefully there's someone around to help you out again.

Has anyone heard of the stock BST carb leaking gas from where the fuel inlet pipe connects to the carb on the DR? We had my mates carby off the other night to put a DJ kit in and since then it's been weeping gas ever so slightly. Not from the overflow though where you'd expect to see it, but from what looks like could be the float bowl gasket or inlet pipe. Bowl came off and gasket is all good. Overflow pipe isn't blocked so I can't work out why/how/where it could be leaking fuel?

That's heaps - at least 6 litres there! At 21 km per litre that should almost get me almost 135 km's.

And I haven't forgotten I still owe you 500 ml's of fuel.

someone correct me if i'm wrong, isn't there a tiny rubber o-ring that can pop off the lower section of the float bowel if you aren't careful? or am i just getting confused with the one that definitely exists at the top of the carb when you take the plastic top off?

Hey b1 nah there's no o-ring on that bottom section unfortunately, just the gasket. I've ordered a new float bowl gasket and needle and seat and for it but I'm still perplexed. If the needle and seat were shot it should be leaking from the over flow. That's why I'm thinking it must be the inlet pipe.

The fuel line may have a pin hole leak or small split??

That inlet is stuck in there tight, some guys have bent them trying to rotate for a larger tank. I wonder if that wicking Loctite would work in this application?

Yeah I'll change the hose as well while I've got the bike apart. It's odd that I can't see any fuel on the end of the hose as that'd be the obvious culprit.

I know I've twisted mine around to get everything out of the safari tank and that pipe is in there tight. That's why it seems unlikely to me that it could leak from here on my mates bike. I think I'll try and seal it off anyway with some loctite or jbweld just incase

Any chance you guys just got a small bit of debris on the float bowl o-ring? Might just need a quick hosing off.

Unlikely. We took the bowl off again to check it and it looked ok. Put it back on and half an hour later it started weeping out again

I've put my MPE forks onto Boo's bike and so have a surplus DR front end.
Have a look at the for sale thread.
Complete front end including wheel, light, speedo and headlight surround.
Asking $650 for the lot and I'll toss in a free rear shock.

Does anyone know of a seat good for long days? Just got in from a 937km day and my ass hurts :) Hoping there is a better option.

I have an extra padded seat and my ass still hurts, so I got myself a airhawk and loved it.....
