2009 evo 300

Recommended Posts

Hi guy's. I have a 2009 beta evo 290 which has started guzzling fuel, around 2-3 litres an hour. There is no leaks I can see with engine running or not and the carb is clean with floats set. Not had bike long so I'm not really sure about power but it doesn't feel much better than my old rev3 200. 

Any info, help, ideas would be welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I would bet your floats are sticking and is running out the over flow tubes. Mine does it every so often.

I can't see or smell any petrol leaking anyplace . The idle screw is turned fully in and the air screw doesn't seem to make a lot of difference. Maybe once it's around 3 turns out it does.

 Sounds like you need a carb clean to start with. Pay attention to the pilot jet and circuit. Make sure the needle and seat is good and working.

Thanks I'll give it another clean and check it out.
