Sounds like you answered your own question. It should be the float bowl. I would recommend getting used carb off of ebay as having the float bowl hammered off can't be good for the carb.

Buell blast carb leaks fuel flooding


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

86 Honda CBX750F,Would a inline glass fuel filter solve my flooding problem?


the shut off valves for the float bowl are probably stuck-or not seating properly --remove the carbueretors and remove the float bowls ( the bottom covers ) - the valves are over the floats, near the pivot point -remove the pins that hold the floats - and remove the floats - the valves may be attached to the floats with a small klip --inspect and clean the valve and the valve seat

My 2003 Buell Blast won't start unless I spray carb cleaner in carb, then it doesn't want to idle at all.


Take the bowl off of the carb and clean it. This should remove all old gas and varnish buildup and it should work now.

Hi guys my sons crf50 has fuel runnig out of the overflow it appers the float is stuck open any suggetions cheers chris


Hi, if you don't want to take the carb open and clean it, you can try tapping on the float bowl with a small hammer to reseat the valve. If it happens often, it is best to rebuild the carb.

Have a 2001 Yamaha 1100, carbs are leaking, why?


Fuel over flow is normally caused by dirt getting into the fuel lines and blocking the valve in the float bowl. The reason that if wont fire is because there is too much fuel in the engine and it is flooding.

Turn the fuel off and remove the carb.

take off the float bowl and remove the float. held in by a bar.

check the valve and blast compressed air into the valve seat to clear any debris.

Rebuild the float bowl but do not put the case back on yet. a simple test to see if it has worked is to gently hold the float whilst blowing down the fuel line.
As you move the float up and down by hand it should be harder or easier to blow, resulting in a complete stop when you close the valve completely. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY TOO MUCH PRESSURE TO THE FLOAT BOWL)
as this could bend the float. Once happy with the operation of the float, replace the case and install back on the bike.

Please reply if this does not fix the problem.

Started my 03 blast and looked like oil and gas leaking from carb help please


no, The reason being your having some oil in your intake and carb is 1 of 2 reasons, Your Manifold Carb Coupler (Rubber Boot) is loose and your getting to much air in so its sucking it from the cylinder, thats where your getting some oil, and its probably back firing, the other reason is make sure ALL your rubber hoses and fittings are SECURLY FASTENED, if any of them are just a little loose, that will cause your carb vac to grab some oil from the cylinder too! Hope this helps!

Backfiring will not start without either


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

2000 Buell Blast will not turn over


You have fuel in the tank, but is the float bowl full? Loosen the bowl drain, see if ya got gas. All the new bikes have vacuum operated fuel petcocks, and it takes forever in the spring to crank em long enough to fill the bowl. Take the line off the petcock, fill it with a small funnel with fuel, then put it back on, and fire it up.

Buell blast is backfiring. Sat for 2 years so, cleaned fuel tank and cleaned carb. It will start now but is backfiring and will die of I try to idle. Thanks


If you did not completely disassemble the carb and remove all jets/emulsion tubes/needle valves then you did not clean the carb adequately. You could try adding either Seafoam, the Yamaha CARB-CL-EAN-ER, or Techron fuel system cleaner in an auxiliary gas tank and running the engine for a short while to ensure the mix gets into all the nooks and crannies. Let it sit for a couple hours to do the work, then drain out the float bowl, hook up the bike's gas tank and see what happens. Otherwise you need to remove, strip, clean, reassemble, and reinstall the carb.

The flow bowl is stuck. Easy to fix. Take the carb off and take it and dump it unside down. Re-install and check it out. Or you can try to tap on the flow bowl on the carb. Float bowl is on bottom of carb, it is screwed in by 4 screws.
