carb problems

Recommended Posts

so i opened my carb as it would leak from the overflow valve too often when i shut the engine off without turning off the petcock and now when i opened it there is no float needle! and the parts list said the float needle is $53 us &%$#@! an entire carb can be had for $15 more. it's the mikuni carb btw, i read a guy said he got 5 for like $35 bucks on this forums. where can i get a float needle or is there one i can use from a different carb?

How could there be no float needle? With no float needle it would not run at all just flood out the overflow all the time. (by the way, in the US we did not get the over flow hose so any over flow just flooded in to the engine)

i opened the carb and there was absolutely no float needle at all, the bike did flood easily but once it started it would never leak from the valve, and btw the bike started in like a 1 sec before i dismantled it. where can i find a needle and seat? this bothers me.
