HI GUYS.ALL you with carb
puke issues need to extend the fuel overflow hose to drain/dump fuel out below your bikes for if/when your carb pukes just like i have been trying to get you guys to do for months now here in RSC. But many of you seem to ignor that fact and just let the puked fuel go onto the the hot motor/hot exhaust just waiting to be lite up.
Read what happened to this R* owner,was not good at all esp with the wife there too which could have really been a bad deal if they didnt get it under control fast enough.
So chk it out.

I was riding my motorcycle out of aspen colorado when i stopped to get gas. i filled the tank on my motorcycle. i then went inside and took a 15 min break. i then got back on my bike, started it and told my wife to get on. as she was getting on the bike stalled. unknown to me the carburetor started overflowing, dumping fuel on the hot pipes and my right boot. i hit the starter to restart the bike and the bike backfired setting the vaporized fuel on fire. we were able to put the fire out. there was some damage to the bike and the bike had to be trailered back to ohio. thankfully no one was injured.
Now maybe after reading this carb puke incident you people here in RSC will take carb puke a little more seriously and at the very least like i have suggested to extend your carbs over flow hose from the rear of air cleaner to below the bike to get raw fuel off the hot motor should the carbs puke to avoid setting you and yu bike on fire like happended to the person in the above statement.
And maybe some of you will also try what i have posted mult times here in RSC that worked for me stopping my bikes carb puking 4 of 5 times post hot shut downs which many say doesnt work. But it worked for my bikes carb just fine taking only 1.5 hrs & $20 to do,now there's no more carb puke on my bike even in 95 deg HHH temps.
For me actions/results speak louder then words & i got results with no more carb puke at all backing up what i have been posting and thats all i need to say on that one.
