Hi guys,
I've got a 2008 drz400e and noticed when filling up that fuel was dripping from the overflow hose under the bike. I'm buggered if I can find any info anywhere but I'm thinking needle and seat?
I pulled off the float bowl cover and the float seems to work ok (I bent the metal tang up a smidge anyway just in case) and pulled out the needle but couldn't see too much wrong with it.

I've got a stock exhaust, so would I be better off buying a performance jet kit now or just replace the standard one until I replace the exhaust?

Cheers for any info.

Hacksaw.

Only needs the tiniest bit of gunk in it to make fuel flow!

I've ordered a new needle and seat and will get some carby cleaner. See if that helps.
