Carb (Mikuni) flooding on Yamaha Vmax motor cycle

One of the mikuni carbs on my yamaha V max motor cycle is flooding as soon as I switch the engine on the bowl floods and petrol pours out the breather pipe. The Diaphram is intact, the jet needle looks OK, not sure next thing to check but bike is unrideable as fuel pouring all over the engine!!
Before I take the carb off and strip it down (then have balancing issues when reinstall) would appreciate any tips!

You will have to adjust the float pin of tht particular carb and don't remove them off the rack..just pull them out of the engine and work on the one tht needs attention.
Hope this helps!

I had a similar problem. For the float needle there is a seat that it goes into, check this for dirt first, then if no dirt present, the brass part (not the needle but the part it seats into) has an o-ring where it mates to the carb body. If that o-ring is not tightly sealed it will allow fuel to bypass. I found o-rings very cheap at pep boys just take an old one with you to match for size. very cheap too. (under 5 dollars)

check for flooding carb/ carbs. set propper float levels. make sure the throtle cable is adjusted from the top and the bottom. make sure the carb flys are closing all the way. sounds more like a flooding problem.
