Some Guidance...

New to this forum...appreciate any help & guidance...
I have a Honda 2001 Foreman Rubicon that started leaking fuel. I turned the fuel control off and it stopped. Couple days later turned the valve back on and took the machine out. Returned and turned machine off and no leak. Next time out...the leak was there. So, what's going on and what do I need to do?
Also, when I put the machine in gear...its seems the break is on...but it isn't...i take it out of gear...put it back in and I get a "knuck" and it moves out. Again...what's going on and what should I do?
Many thanks...

hey Jon...first off...welcome...lotta guys on here waaaaay smarter than me about this stuff..hopefully they'll jump in...but first guess on the fuel is the petcock gasket is just worn out..dry, etc...on one of my much older bikes my problem was not with the petcock but the carb itself and while the old japan quality is much better, it was just easier to get a cheap china carb and swap it out with new gaskets all around and get back to riding..will rebuild the OEM carb later.

as for your transmission clue..sorry.. I'm assuming you Rubi is elecrtic shift?
