08 TXC 450 wont start

Recommended Posts

I'm sure you can help me out. Bike sat for about 3 months. Turns over and Gets spark but wont start. Gas flows out of tank. Im not familiar with the carb What do I need to take apart and clean on the carb? How do you get at it? Or do you think another issue. Was running fine when parked.

Most likely a clogged pilot/idle (slow) jet and maybe even the main jet. Remove carb, remove pilot jet, get a single strand of copper speaker wire, wrap it around your finger to make a big spring shape, pull that thru the jet. Dont use steel.
