Hi everyone. I did a search and could not find this problem previously addressed. I have a strange problem and was hoping someone might have an idea what's going on. I have a 1982 CX500. When my petcock is either on or on reserve and my bike is not running gas pours out of a little hose at the bottom of my bike. It doesn't do this when the bike is running. But as soon as I turn it off whoosh. I drained almost an entire tank of gas onto my driveway because I forgot to shut the fuel off. My first thought is sticky floats but I'm not sure if the "vacuum petcock" might be the problem. Has anyone ever experienced this problem before? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
