advice on fuel petcock (?) needed
So I'm finally starting to do some maintenance and replacement jobs on my recently acquired vn750. First job is the cooling system, that hasn't been functioning well (one of the hoses tore and I got sprayed with coolant last saturday). Got it all off now and am cleaning it (radiator, thermostat etc) and replacing the hoses.
The issue is, that on taking off the fuel tank, I noticed that one of the vacuum leaders is leaking fuel. I understand that the two lateral pipes that com out of the tank are vacuum pipes, the middle one is the fuel one. So one closing the fuel valve there shouldn't be leaking fuel, right ?
I'd appreciate an explanation on what is happening here, and the procedure to be followed. Thanks in advance !
