<HTML>The more info I get, the more questions I have..
After deciding to tackle the problem again tonight, I grabbed the flashlight and headed to the garage. The carb is leaking alot. I removed the fuel line at the carb and plugged it. I checked the spark plug to make sure that it was not soaked with fuel. It was not. I then removed the muffler (per the long distance call to a mechanic in Ca.). I'm in a part of FL that does not have amoped service or sales shop within miles. The muffleer was not clogged(I checked by blowing thru it with ease). I also removed the air filter so it could "breathe all the air it wanted. I started the bike with only the fuel left in the carb. It ran great. Now, the carb is overflowing due to either the float not working or the needle valve is no good, correct?
Am I on the right track as I post the progress on troubleshooting this motor? </HTML>
