SOURCE: GS550 carburator floods with fuel evident from

I had the same problem with my 550. I had fuel flowingout of the second carb overflow. The problem for my bike was a stuck needle valve. WhatI had to do was to take the bottom of the float assembly off, to take the float off and to spray some carb cleaner into the needle valve to get it not to stick. However, the problem was junk coming from the tank and clogging up the valve, so in ten minutes I had the same problem again.

What I did this time was to install a small in-line filter between the tank and the fuel intake for the carbs. It looks a bit wonky, but I've run it now for over a week without having the same problem flare up again.

Overflow leaking

From your description (keeps overflowing,spark plug always wet), it sounds like it's flooding.
Because of the overflowing, possibly your float is set too high, or some crud is lodged between the float needle valve and it's seat, not allowing it to seal shut when the float bowl is full, then flooding the carb's mixing chamber.

2008 yamaha yz 125 carburator flooding out, cleaned carb, checked reed valve, still flooding out?

You say it's flooding - is fuel coming out the overflows? If so, you might need to replace the needle and seat, but based on the age of the bike, I wouldn't think you would have to do that yet. Even with a bike that is raced, you can get many, many years on the needle without having to replace it - unless something damaged it. Inspect the needle and seat closely for nicks or imbedded **** in the sealing area. Also - I assume you set the float properly. This is an important step. Personally - I think the factory setting is too high - since about 2001 I have set the float 2MM lower than recommended. Otherwise you will have fuel pouring from the overflows on the faces of jumps or in the whoops.

If the engine is "flooding" - it could be down on compression which will make it run rich. Or you might just have to re-jet but I would only re-jet if the engine is fresh. You can also try running a B8ES pluf - it's a step hotte than stock and what I ran. Keep in mind that the ring in a 125 doesn't last long at all. There's only one ring. I would replace the ring before each race when I was running 125s - this happened every week during the season. 2-3 ring replacements per piston, 4-6 piston replacements per cylinder.

If you provide more info, I can give you a better answer on your exact problem - I don't know if I really know exactly what the problem is.

Battery turns engine over, but doesn't fire... sparks and plug. o.k. then floods carburetor and plug

Sounds like a float sticking in your carburator, this will allow it to keep accepting fuel, overflowing the bowl.

Flooding problem.

Carburator Floats are Stuck or GasLogged. May also be the Pilot Needles.
Try Cleaning and Inspecting the Carbs First, May just be a Piece of dirt holding the Float Open allowing the Gas to keep flowing.
