Hey gents. Here is my situation. Turn the gas on, and then gas comes out of the over flow tubes on the carbs, (more so the left one)
This happend out of the clear blue 2 days ago. bike ran fine before.
My diagnosis is the float is not rising in the bowl to turn the valve off in the carb.
I removed both carbs, inspected and cleaned them.
Reassembled, ran great! then they flooded again. Im very puzzled.
Any ideas?
Thanks for looking

p.s. theyre keihin carbs if it helps

Did you check the "float height" when you had them apart?

Got it running, took it on the hiway 65mph tops, when i came off the was a good deal of smoke coming from the right tail pipe.
The exhaust felt cold when holding your palm to it, and comparing it to the left pipe.

Im assuming for now it is a fuel issue, but not sure. Any ideas
Thanks
