Your floats in the carb are stuck. Take the float bowl off and clean the floats with a carb cleaner, it may also require an overnight soaking in a solvent, parts cleaner, or degreaser. Depending on the condition, they may need to be replaced.

On a suzuki gsx400f how do i set mixture on carbs

The year makes a big difference, but normal carb mixture starting position is 1.5 turns out, not all the way in. But mixture normally does not effect starting. Usually backfiring is timing or jumped chain? But can happen if a float is stuck and gas pouring in.

Drain the carb floats and clean with Seafoam. Gas breaks down after about 6 months and the ethanol in the gas coats the carb.

the needle is not seating with the float which is causing the carburetor to flood. either the needle is not attached to the float(some snap into a plastic groove, others have a spring) or the float is bad. Hope this helps Tim

Gas pouring out of air filter

carb is gummed up from the old fuel turning to varnish and clogging the jets. while trying to start, its trying to inject fuel, but its clogged and taking the path of least resistance (coming out the air filter).

you'll need to drain the gas tank and remove the carb to clean it out. if unfamiliar or uncomfortable doing this, then take it to someone to do a carb cleaning.

check the fuel pump, maybe it is not working. if you put a new accelerator pump, I wonder if it's same as the fuel pump. if so, maybe you need to rebuild your carb, clean the small fuel line in the carb, something block there.
