Hi, maybe its the same problem i had, i have a 1200 goldwing where your spark plug are there are holes if these become clogged the water stays there and causes backfiring, get a metal welding rod or steel coat hanger and push through the hole to clear the water, hope this helps good luck.

When removing the pilot jet screw, count the number of turns to remove. Put the screw back the same number of turns then unscrew 1/4 turn.
A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

You'll have to contact me directly for that information. The reason is that the float level is not set in the more conventional manner like other carbs. The float level is set to0.413 - 0.453' from the "bottom" of the float to the lower face of the carb body with the carb tilted at an angle of 15 - 20°. A picture is worth a thousand words in this case. For a picture, contact me directly at wd4ity at bellsouth.net

Sounds like an inlet valve is sticking open. You have to disassemble the carb and find the cause. Overflow is too much fuel. Fix this before using or running the machine, as you are a fire hazard.
