Working out the Bugs | kz750

Well as in every build there is going to be shit that happens. So I got a little over confident and decided to let gas sit in the tank overnight (which it should be able to do). Well the petcock had a small internal leak.  Adding to that the #2 carb float was sticking or set to high.

So I wake up around 4a.m to the smell of gas!! Shit!! I go into the garage and sure enough there was gas all over the table and the left side of the motor. So I had some clean up to do. I started to disassemble, to stop the leak. I needed to get the tank off of there.  To add insult to injury, while taking the seat off I chipped the paint on the gas tank!!

Oh well, it happens! I better get to fixing!!
