Fuel leak at exhaust port   Technical-Bikes

Hi all, 

Buddy of mine found his bike doing this (see picture). 

Seems like a fuel leak at the exhaust port. So he will be checking his floats and needles. Any other causes or things he needs to check before riding? 

Thank you all for helping

Fuel is most likely leaking from the carb/intake boot.....then running along the fins to the front. Could be a stuck float...or something else. Probably time to remove and clean/adjust the carbs.

That is the exact thing he is doing right now. After that leave the back to see if the leak returns? Or just try and start it?

If he's taken care of the carbs, adjusted things correctly....the fuel leak should go away.....unless it's not coming from the boot. He's got to make sure where the leak is first.
