Remove the hold down screw for the float.

 

Carefully, remove the float from the carb body, being mindful of the float tab and float needle valve wires.

 

If the float needle valve (your red arrow) is truly stuck the whole float needle valve assembly will need to be replaced.

 

I that case, remove the hold down screw for the needle valve seat.

 

Remove the needle valve assembly.

 

Replace with a fresh one.

Meanwhile I will try to clean it up real good.

Hey, that's a good thing. It indicates that your o-ring on the seat was likely okay. My seat fell right out because the o-ring was shot. My bad o-ring, coupled with a leaky stock petcock, caused my bike to flood. :cry:

Yeah I don't know, it didn't look too good, but a new one coming in the kit. Yup, replaced a leaky petcock not too long ago!
