2005 drz 125L carb hose line diagram

Might be fuel leaking from overflow. Perhaps the float valve is stuck or damaged, allowing the float bowl to overfill. Slight chance tapping on side of carb may seat the valve. If not, it will probably have to either be set, or replaced. Could possibly have some "gunk" stuck in the valve seat from the cleaning. It only takes a tiny speck of debris to hold the valve open, causing flooding. Another possible cause is that during the cleaning, the tab that adjusts the level of the float valve got bumped, changing the level.

It won't start'. I have added fresh gas and changed the spark plugs.

these can be a real pain, a small speck of dirt in the veins of the carb can cause it not to start, try blowing through it with a air line,we,ve had a few in our work shop with the same problem as you have

Blower will run on choke but not in the run postion

If you haven't tampered with any adjustments (Set screw, Idle, Hi or Lo jets etc...) then most likely your carb is flooding. You either have something stuck in the needle valve passage keeping it open. (And it can be Tiny! and I mean a speck.) You can try shooting some good old "Gumout" or any other carb cleaner/ degreaser made for carbs. Try removing the gas line off the carb "Inlet" and with that hose off spray the carb cleaner into that hole liberally. Pull the throttle open and close fast as you do the "spray in".If you have compressed air? Send a little of that in there after the spray, then spray a bit more cleaner in. Let it then sit for 10 15 min loaded with cleaner. Then reconnect the gas hose, prime it up with the primer bulb, restart it, let it warm up a bit. see what happens. Oh FYI to much oil (or the wrong type)in the gas mix can sometimes cause something very similar to flooding. So make sure all is correct!

The float needle is stuck open. Typically the needle can get a speck of dirt or the float adjustment arm is not properly aligned. The arm should be able to close the needle at approximately 90 degrees. Remove the float bowl and look at the carb from the side and adjust the arm to seat the needle when the floats are about where they would be as if the bowl were full of fuel.
Good luck.

Usually that is a sign of the carb not being adjusted right. Run it at full throttle and adjust the main mixture needle (usually on the bottom) until it runs the smoothest. Set it in the middle of the range where it runs smooth. Then set it down to idle and adjust the idle mixture until it runs smooth at idle. Accelerate it rapidly and if it bogs or hesitates turn the idle mixture a little leaner (clockwise) and try again until it works right. That should get you very close. Try tweaking it a bit from there. as the microscopic specks clean out of it, it may need more adjusting.

Carb leakes gas out overflow

It doesn't take much to hang the float valve open. The smallest speck of dirt or debris will cause the float valve to not shut the flow of gasoline off. After sitting for that length of time, the carburetor needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned. Use an automotive carburetor cleaner (but do not put any plastic or rubber parts in the carb cleaning solution as they will be eaten up). While you've got the carb apart, inspect the float valve. Replace it if there's a groove worn into the tapered seat. Installing an in-line fuel filter may help, too.

When warm idols at 2K

check the carb the cylinder gaskets if there is a leak somewhere it will want to rev really high but as for adjustment screws they will be on the throttle blade themselves and I think suzuki put them on the front of the carbs. And I think there will be only one screw, this adjusts the idle speed on both carbs. Also make sure you're running proper grade of fuel. suzuki's hate anything but premium(at least 91 octane)

The floating element in the carb. is shaking as well . As you hit the throtle the shaking will lift up the floating element in the carb. house and on the overflow pipe the extra fuel will pass . Adjust the fuel level , check the floating elemnt inside of the carb. case . ( If you not sure , take your bike to the nearest garage . ) I used to play with these things for days . Avoid any damage on the carb . rubber sealant . Keep your eye on the screws ! Some of them are attached with spring as well . Peter
