firstly, even after 2 years, Im still a complete newb so sorry for my ignorance...


I wanted to clean the air filter today and when i took it out and looked in the air filter case (is that what its called?), i noticed there was fuel in the bottom of the case and some on the base of the air-filter.

Is that normal or a problem?

Thanks

not a mechanic but I would say that's a problem... Personally I would look for any signs of leaks from fuel lines/tank that may have caused it to drip into the air-filter-box

is it fuel or oil


its not uncommon to get oil mist in there from the crank case breather which can smell a bit like petrol although if you feel the consistency its much thicker

its not a lot to be honest but but the bottom of the filter was wet. When i wiped it clean it was the colour of oil so i thought it may have been that. the fuel pipe is leaking slightly and im getting it changed today.

So, you dont think theres a problem with the carburetors?


thanks btw
