Default Re: dirty fuel tank

Ok... here's what happened. I could not get it to run for more than about 20-30 seconds. Then it would sound like it was flooded. So I tried something that I've tried before to see if it would work. I took the bowl off the carburetor and once again the prongs for the float were stuck in a position that was too high. All I had to do was put a little downward pressure on the prongs and they snapped into a lower position. I put the bowl back on and tried to to take the bike out for a ride. Well it ran great. No spitting or sputtering... just ran great.

My question is this... how can I stop the prongs from sticking too high? Is this a common thing? Do I need to bend the prongs?

Just don't know what to do guys... need a little help.
