calling all petcock pros!
I removed the petcock to carb hose with the petcock in the ON position and noticed a drip. I know this means bad things, so I attempted removal and disassembly, all looked good, but it continued to leak upon reinstall. so, Ill go buy a 91.00 new one. I just dont trust the rebuild kit...do you?
next, I think the gas flows only when the bike is on because of a vacuum tube. but...I did the epa removal thing, so MY tube coming from the petcock is now capped. Is this a major problem? the bike could never have run with only the tiny drip, so im assuming that somehow when the bike is powered on, gas does flow more. im also thinking this issue is why I found gas running out of my tailpipes the other day...and I thnk some gas got in the oil...past the rings, because the oil level is now higher. any thoughts or experience on this/?
