Question help!! gas coming out of air intake

hi im just jim i just joined and i got a problem, i have an 89 vulcan 750. this is my first bike and i love it but dont know enough about it. the other day i took off the gas tank to see about clearance for a possable tank change. now when i start her up gas come out of the air intake ( a good amount of gas). i thought i put everything back right so i went back and swiched out the hoses to the carb to no avail i think it got worse. so i switched it back how it was. i think it might be a float or something but im a compleat novice. any good advise. thanx

You have debris in your carb float valve or a stuck float valve. You can try tapping on the side of the carbs, but you may have to remove them and clean.

its more like a chinese puzzle in and out be patient... leave the boot on the rear head and leave the boot on the front carb..

I find when installing a pry bar works good to set the carbs back in the boots ... the first time is tricky and the second time is like butter...

there will be more chiming in with there how too's if your not ear shaved then use a wood handled something to wedge between the head and the sergetank (air chamber below the gas tank)

when cleaning do one side at a time ... that way u always have a refrence for how to put it back together ...
