Carb issues

I have a 2000 R1 that I put together but fuel keeps coming out of my overflow and leaks from under the carburetor. Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this and get my bike running again without the issues.

One of the floats isnt adjusted right or the needle isnt seating all the way to cut the fuel off. Find out which carb it is and removed the bowl. Find out the bowl measurements and check the needle and seat to make sure there isnt any dirt keeping it open.

check around on some R1 specific forums. I'm sure there are plenty of guys around there who would know.

unless your luck is that bad, one bowl should be good so you can compare the one bowl to the other. The needle will be obvious if it's that (scratches, maybe bent), and in that case you can buy a jetting kit.

Take her word. I don't know anyone who knows more about carbs then Myla. She just got done installing a stage 3 jet kit on our 250 endurance bike for our team.

Been there, done that, have a busted knuckle or two from fiddling with pesky carb boots and tight spaces! I hope you can resolve this without too much effort.

I haven't done that much with carbs! But I'm more patient than others. So, I've done all right...
