Hi - any advice on the following would be gratefully received.
Went out on the bike on Saturday to get a coffee, massive back fire coming to a stop at the lights. Engine died and haven't been able to start it since. Have pulled carbs apart, cleaned them and all appears in order - including the floats.
However, when I put the carbs back on and reconnect the fuel lines, petrol pisses out of the bowl overflow lines. It's never done this before.
It's also tricky to kick over - getting quite a bit of kick back which is also a new issue for this bike. On a few kicks it has almost fired, but doesn't catch...
Has anyone encountered anything like this before and any ideas on what could be causing the problem...
