I posted earlier that my bike was smoking from the left pipe after I dropped her in the driveway. Today I fired it up to see if it was still doing it and sure enough, it was. It was also dropping some black liquid out of the pipe. I touched it and gave her a smell and sure enough, it's raw gas. I pulled the plug on the right side of the bike and it's wet and black. I was already going to pull the carbs to fix my leaky starter plunger and install the bigger jets. Is there anything else I should look at since they'll be off? I believe that typically this may be caused by a stuck float? Any input is greatly appreciated. I will say that, even though there's fuel coming out, it still starts fine and also revs fine.

BUMP

Hey All! I took her for a ride earlier and she's flooding the rear cyl again. Poor running, white smoke, etc. I've resolved that I'm gonna have to pull the carbs again and check the float (ala the verses thanks!)

Anything else that I should check while I'm in there again? Last time I wiped out a ton of varnish from the bowls where the drain is. I also cleaned a bunch of crud from the diaphragm at the top end above the needles. As always, any input is greatly appeciated!
