carbs overflowed?

2007 suzuki gs500f only starts in full choke but when i put it in gear it slowly revs down and idles. When i try accelerates it sometimes makes a poping sound and dies. Im thinking that since i left the peacock in reserve position that the fuel drowned my carburators. I also tried changing the spark plugs...thanks in advance

Sounds like you need to clean your jets. My dirt bike was doing the same thing, and fresh fuel and a carb clean fixed it right up.

there are some tiny passages in the tube the main jet screws into and of course the main jet also. Sounds like your float and/ or needle and seat may be gummed up also.

Clean carbs and then install in-line fuel filters.
The passages in the idle jets are so small you can barely see light thru them. They have to be perfectly clean or the bike won't start or run right. The bore the needle valve rides in as well as the needle valve itself, have to be clean or the needle valve will stick, causing the carbs to overflow.

Define "not too long ago".

Anything over 60-90 days is subject to problems. , I have seen our new crappy fuel become a problem in as little as 30 days.

Fuel leaking is a needle sticking and goofy rev problems is a jet/passage problem. Pull the carbs and clean.
