Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Carb started pouring fuel.
Against my own better judgement I took it off and started taking it apart at night under a streetlamp. I told myself I was more likely to lose some irreplaceable part than actually get it running with the few tools I carry.
Turns out the floats in that gas well or pool at the bottom of the carburetor had come off it's hinge. the pin that attaches it poured out with the fuel. I slid it on and was back on the road minutes later.

Question: Is this common? has anyone else hadthis happen?
It's a Grubee shyhawk with about 150 miles on it.
