Hi all, After reading loads of forum threads about the Honda Spada, I figured I'd take a whole year to get through them.. So I'll start one up... I guess I'll start from the beginning.. I bought my Spada in top shape (well at the time I thought she was..) I got her home in one piece (almost ran out of fuel half way home.. but I got to a servo just in the nic of time!) After giving it a full tank I rode home and just as I turned the key to turn her off, I start to smell fuel/petrol fumes.. So with the engine off and I've just put her on the stand, I noticed there was a little leak from the over flow tubes located just near the stand and gear lever... I thought oh ok that could be normal.. The next day, I went to check on her and she's leaked more fuel .. so I took her to see my mechanic to see if he can check why she's leaking fuel.. When I got back to my mechanic some weeks later (just a week) my mechanic said, he noticed that the week he has had it, the spada almost ran out of petrol (knowingly I left the bike with a fuel tank) - he said it might have drained slowly via the over flow tubes below... then he replaced the spark plugs and topped up the engine oil and used a carby and throttle cleaner to make sure there was no lurking gunk around.. took it for spin and he said she purred like a cat... but this didn't stopped the leaking - after he stood it on its stand, there was still a little leak of petrol below.. (Asked about the petrol fume smell after the ride - no mentioned but I think he didn't hear me over the phone!) after all that he suggested I take it to a pro who does pro carby cleaning (but he thinks it can't be the carby because the spada isn't blowing or spitting out smoke or fluids..) but to be on the safe side he wants me to ask around town and find out how much it is to get my spada's carby's fully serviced (but he doesn't think this will fix the petrol leak) My questions after all that.. 1) does anyone recommend a motorcycle shop in SYdney for a good price? 2) it there any suggestions on what can cause this petrol leaking through the over flow tubes? 3) would someone like me (A learner and newbie) tackle something like this (cleaning out my spada's carby's)? opinions.. 4) should I be just taking my bike to those dealers who specialise in motorcycles and have them service it ? 5) any other suggestions that i should have my mechanic check for? Thank you in advance folks! Any info/insights would be awesome!!
