Gas leaking from on high in the carb
Hello, all. First time posting so here's a little background.
Bike is a '98 750 with about 10K on it. We've had it for a few months and it had been sitting in a garage for about 3 years prior to that. Had problems initially starting it, brought it to a Kawasaki dealer, and the carbs were rebuilt. Had a gas leaking issue shortly thereafter, brought it back and they "fixed" the issue saying something was stuck (float?).
For the next 2K miles no issues and now it's leaking again. When I open the choke it literally flows. It's coming from the highest point of the left side carb that I can see without pulling the tank. Shut off valve is in the off position. I'm puzzled that the gas continues to flow and neither the float (stuck again??) or shut off valve stops the issues.
I'm somewhat mechanically inclined, at least with cars, so not afraid to give it a go myself. Anyone have an idea as to just what is going on?
Much thanks in advance!
