Cool leaking fuel

I have a 95 Magna, it runs great, but when it cools down gas leaks from the exhaust pipes. Also when it sits for a extended period gas blows out the pipes when I start it. Is there a seal, jet, or tube that it can leak in to the cylinders? I need help.

There's been a rash of these lately on V-4 Hondas - you have a carb (or more than one) float that is "lazy", the float needle/needle-seat is worn, or there is a piece of crud stuck between the needle and seat keeping it from closing completely (or possibly even a combination of those).

Stop riding the bike until this problem has been addressed, unless you like the idea of burning-down your bike at a minimum, or dying in a fiery conflagration at the worst. Once you have done so - change the oil. It is most-certainly contaminated with fuel.

I think these V-4 Hondas have a rash. Did they make that many, or are they just impossible to kill off?

Put an igniter at the end of the exhaust tips. Then you'll get a cool flamethrower effect when you fire that sucker up.

Its.......A FACT!
