Default Re: Tried bike for first time this afternoon: DIDNT WORK

There's a screw at the bottom of the carb float bowl. Unscrew it, fuel will come out. Screw it back in snug. You may have some trouble getting that screw not to leak, even though there's a little washer on it. Replace it with a hex head bolt or Allen bolt, so you can get a little more torque on it (the Philips head screw is hard to tighten), and/or use a little piece of gasket material to make an additional washer. I did the latter, worked great. I was able to get a nice clean hole by hitting a little square of it with a punch on the concrete garage floor.
