My brother is having trouble with his new KTM 200exc, cross posting this for him


I just picked up my new 200exc yesterday....And it cranked and ran fine. But today, when i was going to go for a trial ride, when i turned on the fuel switch, gas started pouring out of the drain hose on the top of the carburetor, then the bowl. Everything on the carburetor seems to be fine... And i dont understand why it did this today but not yesterday... Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
            Tim.



thanks in advance

Sounds like the needle valve is stuck.

take it back to the shop.

sounds like the float is stuck.
