My Carb on my rear cylinder is dumping fuel into my cylinder and hydro locking the cylinder half the time and the times I can get it to run I only run on the front cylinder. I rebuilt the carbs after this problem started including the floats and jet kit. Still the same issue. Any suggestions on what it is?. outside of that I look at prices and I cant see spending $900 on a damn carb. Is there any aftermarket carbs that would work but not cost so much. please help.

Any time you have fuel "dumping" into the cylinder it is float related. Either needle not seating or float set too high. :) ;)

A shop can rebuild/clean the carb/carbs for you...
THEN ~ IF ~ it still floods the cylinder you can have them "re FIX " It till it`s right!!!!

That`s cheaper than a new carb, ain`t it???

I have a 1996 750 V4 in the stable now, Chicken Man wants me to clean his carbs for him...
He says the shop charges $100 each carb????

Merry Christmas,
Dennis
