    Flooding Problems, YZ 426

    Hi everyone, I have a 2001 YZ 426 that I have some carb flooding problems with. Symptoms are as follows: -If I cut the engine, after about a minute, fuel comes out of one of the overflow tubes from the carb. - If this happens, I need to kick the bike over about 50 times in order to clear it prior to it starting. Things I've done to rectify the situation are: -Changed the float level to reduce the amount of fuel being put into the carb. -Used some grinding paste to get the fit with the needle valve as snug as possible. Neither of these had any effect. Any suggestions? Cheers.
