After cleaning carb, I now have raw gas coming out the exhaust???

Hi, Barry 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.
Good luck and have nice a day.

Bike is flooding

It sounds like your float height in carb is too low or your needle and seat are worn. Sounds like your float being low is letting in too much gas into carb bowl and subsequently overflowing out into air cleaner. Remove carb, remove bowl, and check float height. Most are adjustable by gently bending the small metal tang where needle connects to float. Also, check needle and seat, if these are worn they will not stop fuel from entering carb and overflow as well. I am certain if you check these you will find your answer. Good luck.

Sounds to me like the float needle valve in the carb is leaking. This will cause fuel to over flow out of carb, and will even get into the engine oil. Check to be sure that float is not got gas in it the can go bad. Also check float adjustment. Check needle and seat very carefully for dirt or wear. Just the slightest bit of dirt or wear can cause it to leak. Hope this helps.

the float may need to have an adjustment or be checked for parts in the right way.(fuel not being regulated by the float, is caused by worn or damaged needle,or still got trash) once you get this solved the grinding will not be so bed(you will have more safe control of rpms)

First take that 3 rd carb off, the needle and seat is stuck in the open position, the float may be rubbing on the inside of the float bowl cover, or the float setting is out of adjustment (too rich) either way the fuel to the bowl is not shutting off as it fills, the needle and seat must be forced shut by the gas filling the float chamber raising the float and pushing the needle up into the seat. Sometimes the float has been compromised put it in a cup of gas to ensure it floats and is not a sinker. reassemble and check for the fuel over flow if it still over flows your problem has not been solve this issue must be adressed first for the bike to run right otherwise that one cylinder is going to foul and the bike will never run right.
