The fuel filter is in the tank on the petcock and is self cleaning. I suspect you have bad spark plug caps on your bike the cap is part of the wire. If you remove the wire and take a reading with an ohm meter, the cap should read 5000 ohms . Anything above or below and you should replace the cap. This is probably causing the slight miss.

1983 Honda Accord - possible fuel line problem


Flooded means there is too much gas and it blows black smoke and sputters when it does start, right? Flooded has to do with the carburetor, nothing else. There are little windows on the float bowls to see what the fuel level is. If the fuel level is too high it will flood. I sounds like maybe the needle and seat are bad and the carburetor needs an overhaul. If it sputters and no black smoke then it isn't getting enough gas and then your filter search may be the right path. The primary filter should be behind the left rear wheel against the body. Support the car and take the wheel off is easiest way to change it.
