Fuel System Problems and Question about GV250

Hi all,

My girlfriend just picked up a 2007 GV250. We knew when we bought the bike that there was an issue where when you twist the throttle, it dies. It was too good of a deal to pass up on, so we decided to give it a try as her first bike.

When we got it home and started working on it, I figured it would be a fuelling issue, so we took the tank off, and there only appears to be one carburetor. Everything I saw online for these bikes showed that there should be 2 carbs, so I’m wondering if that was a factory thing on some of those bikes, or if someone has swapped this in since. If anyone happens to have any diagrams showing a single carb, that would be much appreciated.

The issue with it running does appear to be fuel related, as I did get it revving slightly by playing with the throttle adjustment on the carb, but it still does sometimes die, and when I do get it running sometimes it won’t idle now. Also when it is sitting not running, there is sometimes fuel leaking out of the intake side of the carburetor.

If anyone has any advice on what to try to make this work properly, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance!
