Kid bought a 06 dvx 400 carb issues
Long and the short of it, we have had it off several times to clean it as the PO had all sorts of sand and nasty crud in the tank. After reading here I realize the petcock is a POS, so that will probably have to get changed. Two questions:
IF you change to the Raptor style petcock, do you have to turn the fuel off when it is parked?
Secondly, I keep adjusting the float between the spot where fuel runs out the overflow tube on the bottom, and where it doesn't have enough fuel to keep running. Can't seem to find a happy medium where the carb gets the gas, and it wont leak when the engine isnt running. Points to the needle and seat / float, but dang, 35.00 for a new needle and seat? Almost tempted to try an ebay 45.00 dollar complete carb. What do you guys think?
