    I am having a very large problem,, my kit is about 2 weeks old and i am leaking fuel where the tube on the carbureator meets the engine... I have tightened the screw and pushed it as far as i could but no hope. Please if anyone can help reply.

    I've had 2 floats fill up with gasoline and sink to the bottom of the float bowl on the same bike in 1 year. I couldn't figure out for the life of me why gas kept leaking out the air filter and various other carburetor orifices, and that was the culprit both times. When the float doesn't float, it doesn't provide the upward force against the hinged metal bracket which shuts off the needle valve. Bad times, but a cheap fix if that proves to be the issue.

    Good luck!
