I've noticed that a lot of gasoline has been dripping out of my left exhaust pipe. i left it on and came back later to notice a puddle of gas at the end of the pipe. the right pipe is fine. does anyone know how to fix this?

Sounds like the proverbial stuck float valve. Try running some Seafoam through the float bowls and see if that doesn't help the problem.

did you verify that this is gas, not water vapor? water is a byproduct of combustion, and you will get drips if your bike is cold just like a car. did it disapear after the bike warmed.

hmm, at operating temps it would seem like that much gas in the exhaust would ignite? And that would probably be bad, no matter how cool it would look. :)

Dripping fluid

Ummm...........If it was dripping fuel & it DID ignite, wouldn't that fix his stuck needle & seat problem? (and any other problem he & the 750 might have):BLAM:

Seafoam is a fuel additive, they sell it at most auto stores. It was made for marine purposis first but works great on bikes, cars, and everytning else.

:smiley_th Make sure you check the oil in your crankcase to make sure you do not have any fuel in it also.Take off the oil fill cap and give it the sniff test.You dont need fuel inside the engine......................
