Fuel leak (gushing) 1992 Goldwing Aspencade 1500

When bike is running, fuel gushes out under the bike in front of the center stand. It is leaking in the area where the Ca Emissions canister used to be, the canister fell off the bracket 30,000 miles ago and got damaged dragging on the pavement and was removed but never replaced. Does anyone know what might be the cause of the gushing fuel leakage?

The bike is a 1992 Goldwing Aspencade 1500 (Ca Model)

Thanks

My guess would be a stuck float in the carb(s). Had that happen on one of my older bikes. Other than that, a ruptured rubber fuel hose/line?

First of all, welcome to the forum.

Check the petcock under the fuel door and make sure it's not leaking. The other things would be as budoka suggested.

Welcome to the forum. I'll avoid making the obvious pun here.

Sorry a bit late for the Welcome and advice but Welcome to the GWOF from Pa. I would agree with Daryl on the stuck float. Changed motor in my trike two years ago and had that same issue upon start up.

It's really common on carbureted units for the float needles to fail to seal. You can try unhooking the fuel line from the tank and using an air compressor force air into the carb fuel inlet which many times will blow the needles and seats clear. If that does not work then you are looking at pulling the carbs and soaking them in carb solvent. My 99 valkyrie tends to leak like this occasionally if not properly stored but the air blast usually fixes it. It's worth a try at least.
Keep in mind this does create a mess so no flames and put a pan under the bike.
