Carb. Troubles

o and a carb other than gaskets and orings , nothing realy wears out, but you can rebuild them cheap, just ask for a borgworner kit for your cab!

just drop the bowls nand clena it out, pull the top off as well and bull the needle and check to see how the surfice of the metle is, ex

i would say take it apart and clean it out, and if you are not mechanicly incline take it to Motorcycles Unlimited and have them clean them out for you !

or the float may not be working at all,

the gass sould fill the boal and the float should ride to a certain level so that the bike is not starving for gas when you get on it!

anyway fi the floats are stuck and not floating , then the carb is just filling the boals with gas and overflowing, ex

Almost always a dirty needle seat when that happens. Remove the bowls, pull the needle, clean, spray carb cleaner inside, replace all parts. Should be good to go after that.

As mentioned above, check the floats to make sure there's no gas inside them- if that's the case, your float(s) are bad and need to be replaced.

If you don't understand anything I just typed above, take your bike to Motorcycles Unlimited and let them fix it right for you.

You lost me, what makes the floats "non-functional"?
