Hey everyone,

I have gas in my air cleaner. What causes this? What's a good fix?

one thing this is from twisting the throttle when your bike is off....every time you twist that throttle, you carb's jets are shooting/spraying gasoline, if your engine is off and you give just a partial little turn, the gas drips down the outside edge of your carb and into your air cleaner...

Thanks. I cleaned it out, put it together and all is fine.

Makes sense tho. I had my bike parked at the shop and my neighbour told me some douche was on it pretending to ride it.

if that doesnt take care of it, it could also be standoff. nothin you can do about it, it just happens.

Just someting you have to get use to, whenever you are sitting at a stop light I bet it coughs now and then when you rev it too. Typical evo sporty, clean it and forget about it.
