    should you be able to see through all of the jets? I found one jet under the bowl that seems like its clogged. I tried little wire, air, nothing will open the hole. thinking i should just buy all new jets. Seems like this is a common issue with these bikes?

    if you cant blow through it or clear it otherwise then maybe that will be your only option
    will you are at the dealer it might be an idea to see if you can get upgraded ones i.e racing jest

My splendor NXG is showing a problem of petrol overflow through the petrol overflow tube when I ride the bike in traffic jam ,i.e holding the clutch repeatedly and driving in low gears.THe same problem...

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. If the bike still has the problem, 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.
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. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Lower carburetor flexible gas outline is draining and i don;t know how to fixed

sounds like your carb float is stuck and your needle and seat is open allowing the bowl to fill with gas and run out the overflow. take off the bottom bowl of carb and check to see if the float has a hole in it.

2006 suzuki rmz 450 seems to be getting gas in the oil. it runs out of the crankcase overflow tube it constantly pours out as soon as i crank it.

The float is stuck open giving the carb fuel constantly. The extra fuel runs into the intake, fills the cylinder, gets past the piston rings and then fills the gearbox and overflows onto the floor. Pull the carb and clean it. Some trash, ( such as rust from the tank ), is not letting the float needle to seat. Also, turn off the gas at the tank when you are not riding. If you already are doing this, the petcock must not be shutting off properly and needs to be replaced. Right now, change the oil in the gearbox. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Gas overflow line coming from carb is pouring out on a 2001 kaw

The float is stuck in the bottom of the carb. Remove the bowl, pull out the float and needle valve, and clean the valve and the hole it sits in.

CRF230 - Throttle won't turn. Can see the cable moving at the carb but the carb won't move. Also, have gas coming out of the overflow.

The overflow problem is a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times doesn’t free the float I would remove the offending carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. By the way, Check the float, it could be filled with gas instead of air. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an in-line fuel filter.

The lack of movement in the carb slide is either a bad cable or the the carb is a CV model. The slide on a CV carb will not move unless the motor is running. Start the motor. Does it speed up normally when you twist the grip? If so, then there is nothing to worry about.

Gas Leak via Overflow

The usual culprit is a blocked vent tube. Verify it's open. The usual indicator is either a pressure release when you open the gas cap, or a vacuum "sucking" noise when opening it first thing in the morning. On a carb equipped bike, the carb overflow lines will leak, but in a fuel injected bike like yours, it'll be out the overflow vent. The next time it begins leaking, open the gas cap. It should stop immediately as pressure inside is released. Good luck.
