Default Re: Leaky carb? Please help.

I found out that my engine was flooding because my float turned into a sink. So I cut down a MOET cork in the size of the OEM part and was back on the road.

After a 20min ride, a quick check of the spark plug discovered it was over fueling, so I backed the notch on the carb needle. Another ride around the same test track, recheck the plug, a lot better burn. A little more torque.
