Default Re: First bike Done....

It could be crud... but it could be simply the float tabs needing a touch of adjustment, I'd bet tabs *shrug* if cleaning it doesn't help, try this...

To adjust the float tabs ya jus' gotta bend them down a tiny bit (like 1/32" or so and that'd be "up" if the carby is upside down 'cause yer workin' on it lol) - bend them too much and it'll cut off the flow too soon and it'll starve out at WOT/max RPM, not enough and it'll puke fuel out of the filter and into the intake & flood. To get 'em perfect may take a bit of patience & more than one attempt - but it's not hard
