SOURCE: fuel leak at bottom of petcock valve 2000 fatboy

Sounds to me like a cracked fuel line. No leaks when sitting still but add the torque of the engine turning over and the vibration and the line flexes enough to leak. If not a fuel line, the weld may be cracked where the petcock mounts to the tank or the petcock itself may be cracked. Is the petcock water trap screwed on tightly?

Replace the petcock. The rubber diaphragm is ruptured. I'd also bet your fuel mileage dropped cause the ruptured diaphragm is allowing raw fuel to be sucked into the intake manifold.

Sounds like you have a hole in the vacuum diaphragm that opens and closes the petcock. This is one of the problems with the vacuum operated device. The other problem is that sometimes they don't open and you're left stranded with a full tank of gas and not a drop in the carburetor. I changed to a manual operated petcock. Personally, I'd rather have a Pingle petcock than another vacuum operated Harley petcock. If you do change to a manual operated petcock, don't forget to plug the small vacuum hose.

If you want to keep your vacuum operated device, I think you can buy a replacement diaphragm. You will have to drain the tank and remove the petcock. There are four small screws on the backside. Remove the screws and the backplate will come off. The diaphragm and a sping is all that is in that section of the petcock.

Fuel not flowing to carb.


Check you petcock for correct operation and make sure its not clogged. If its a vacuume actuated petcock, make sure the hose is attached well and not leaking. If all is well with those 2 things then try seeing if gas will flow when you remove the gas cap. If that fixes the problem, then the vent holes on your gas cap are clogged up.

Motorcyles starts and then dies and does not restart like lack of fuel


These bikes use a vacuum operated fuel petcock too allow the flow of fuel when the bike is running vs shut off. In other words, it takes a vacuum(bike running) to provide a vacuum. The diaphragm in the fuel petcock has undoubtedly gone bad or the vacuum hose has come off or developed a leak.

Check the vacuum hose first connected to the back side of the fuel petcock and make sure it is connected/not leaking.

The fuel petcock itself can be repaired with a replacement diaphragm kit available from your local Honda motorcycle shop. However, unless you are mechanically inclined I would probably let a motorcycle shop do the repair since it does involve gasoline.

Good Luck with it!

2006 Honda VTX 1300 S will not start


Hi, Cpropesandpi and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Quick disconnect check ball stuck.
14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
17. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
18. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
19. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
20. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
21. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
22. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
23. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
24. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
25. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
26. Check for engine trouble codes.

Gas is dripping from the petcock fuel valve( cover set) on my 2005 honda VTX 1300. why? and how do i fix? It seems to be coming from a small hole underneath


Your bike has a vacuum operated petcock. The vacuum diaphram inside the cover set has cracked and is allowing fuel to leak from the vent hole. Unfortunately, you cannot buy just the diaphram, you've got to buy the cover set (#5 in the picture below), P/N 16953-KEA-023, or replace the whole petcock assembly (item #2), P/N 16950-MEM-674.278cd21.jpg
