Hello all. Just recently did the FP jet kit. Got it running decent after much trial and error. Now I find that the carb is dumping fuel after a ride. Sometimes it comes out of the mouth of the bell, and other times out of what I assume is an overflow hose that plumbs into the air intake.

I’ve checked the petcock I think it’s functioning correctly. Is there a way I can check my float valve? The little rubber needle/plug thingy looks fine and the floats seem to float in a cup of gas. What should I do? Anybody know where I can find a replacement for these? are there other issues I should consider?

If you remove the float, and the valve that opens and closes to allow flow, you can check to see if the float has a hole in it allowing gas to fill the inside. To get to the float, you will need to remove the 4 bolts that hold the bowl on the bottom of the carb.
