2005 LTA500F Vinson ATV

Question:

With engine off. Fuel petcock leaks fuel when in Reserve position but does not leak when in Run position. Does this sound like an O ring issue with the valve or something more? It filled the crankcase and air box up with fuel, but did not leak out the bottom of the carb.

What is your take on this and any suggestions at to my best repair solution? {Don, OH, USA 2005 Suzuki LTA500F Vinson ATV}



Answer:

As you can see from the diagram below, the LTA500F Vinson has a fuel petcock that is not designed to be rebuildable. The Suzuki OEM part number for your fuel valve is 44300-03G02. You can order a replacement OEM or aftermarket valve at a local shop or through one of the online retailers' links shown below.
