carb dumping fuel in front cylinder maybe?

I believe the front carb is dumping fuel into the front cylinder, so maybe a stuck float

i have went through the entire ignition system, has good spark on all 4 plugs, removed and tested coils and cleaned all ground surfaces

the front cylinder is quite a bit cooler than the rear, especially at the exhaust manifold around a 100 deg f or so

and the fuel drain on the bottom of the carbs only the "passenger side" carb has any fuel in there, the "driver side" doesnt drain any fuel

my real question is where to find rebuild kits for these carbs so i can rebuild them...


or if anyone has any other ideas?

Sounds like your carbs need a good cleaning.
See Crobins photo gallery:

No kits available, order parts individually fron Cheapcycle parts, Bikebandit, Ron Ayers etc.

I have not pulled my carbs, but there are plenty here who have.
