    85 zl 900 with gas leaking from one of the carbs. I put the petcock in the run position sometimes it stops. If i'm not careful it leaks down into my exhaust system and I get the gas ignites in my pipe. Whats going on?

    :hello: One of 2 things or both. Your pet cock fuel valve needs rebuilt or one or more of the 4 float needle valves are bad or dirty.

    Agree with RJ, also, you should check your oil to see if some gas has leaked down there.
