At the moment in the cold weather if i leave my bike more than a day i seem to be getting water in the float bowl of the carb wich i need to drain before it'll start, I've tried wrapping the tank with a towel and putting the bike cover on but it hasn't worked. Just wondering if any ones got any tips and wether it'll be condenstaion from the tank or from the carb.


Cheers

i'd be very surprized to find it is water!

are you sure it's water?


do you turn the fuel tap off at night?

if the float valve in carb isn't seating properly and you leave the fuel tap on, you'll over fill the carbs so draining them down would allow the bike to run properly. this is just a guess but far more likely than water building up in the carb after a day or so.


if it really is water then it could be from the cooling system. what bike is it and how old is it

I can't think how water would get into your petrol from the cooling system.

kwakers use the cooling system to stop the carbs icing up. twas just an idea before knowing what bike it was :?


i'd suggest you drain the fuel tank down completely and refill with fresh petrol.
