82 450 nighthawk, fired it up for the first time, left carb leaked bad, bounced the bike up and down and the float valve seated. now it feels like the left muffler is plugged, is this possible? very little exhaust coming out, I know its firing, the exhaust pipe is hot.

Is it possible the left pipe is hot at the front because of the power chamber? mufflers on bikes that have been sitting for a while can get clogged up with a variety of things, insect nests, even rodent nests depending on the circumstances

It is not unusual for barn finds to have rodent or insect nests in mufflers. Rodents may also use them as a place to stash food........
