Fuel tap malfunction

Hi all, had to take my fuel pipe off this morning due to it becoming kinked and bogging the bike down. My bike has a fuel tap (not entirely sure if all bikes have them lol) so before taking it off I turned the tap off. However it didn't stop the fuel flow and ended up having to use a old rag to mop up the spillage. Is this a major issue as I remember being told that if fuel drips into the carb it can leak into the engine. Personally I don't get that, isn't that what the carb overflow pipe is for? Either way just wondered if some one could tell me how big an issue this could be, not sure how long its not been working obviously, so could of been like it for months and its been fine. Thanks in advanced.

Trouble is.....if the float sticks in the carb you could end up emptying a tank of fuel all over the floor...... :wink:

FleaBay could be your friend here......and Chinese bikes often use common parts.....so you may find that a fuel tap for another Chinese bike will fit yours......but you'd need to check carefully before buying..... :wink:

Have been looking with no success as yet. Don't suppose anyone knows what could possibly be an alternative, I've read that my engine etc are Suzuki like... code is ga125f if that helps :/
