Ok, I have not been able to touch this thing for awhile, but let me catch everyone up to speed. Well I buttoned everything back up after pulling the carbs BACK apart and making sure there was no trash in the needle valve. put it all back together, and had to wait on my new motorcycle jack to arrive, so I could get the damn oil changed because it was filled with gas.
New jack arrived and I did the oil change, and then just yesterday I fired her up for the first time in about a month. She fired up just fine, but it appears the float/needle valve is still sticking because It wont stop filling the BAK
and Intake with gas.
I didnt let it get as bad as last time, and fill the motor (I just did a dang oil change with Amsoil, and would like not to ruin it). SSSOOOOOOOooo
I pulled the carb
out.........again......and I checked to see if the float is actually floating Correctly in some gasoline:
I checked my needle:
and it APPEARS to be fine, but I really dont know what I am looking at here.
I then checked my needle "seat":
Again everything looks good, but I really dont know squat about carbs in the first place to know what at all I am looking at.
I have checked the service manual diagrams (which suck and are anything but helpful) and it doesnt appear that I am missing any o-rings or whatnot.
If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it, because this is getting to be so depressing that I'm about to have to sell my friggin bike, over a carb issue I cant figure out.
All I know is I put everything back in the way it came out and now it pisses gas everywhere.
