One of my carbs keeps filling with fuel when the bike is off. I have cleaned the carbs, replaced the float needle, the needle jet, and checked the carb float for a leak. When I took off the carbs to replace all this I found that the cylinder was completely full of fuel.

I can't seem to find why this carb keeps flooding when the bike is off. What else could this be?

It's in the float system.
Maybe assembled wrong or a bit of debris in the needle float seat.
The needle jet has nothing to do with it...

Well I did what you suggested and could not find anything. I bent the tab that the float needle hooks to so when the float rises it should go further in. I even exhanged the float and float needle from one carb that is not leaking to another and still the same carb filled up. To clarify only two carbs seem to leak like this, the two on the left, which when the bike is leaning on the peg stand are lower then the other two. What else could it be?

If it's leaning to the left they will fill first.
But once the floats rise it should stop.
Guess you'll have to bring it by.
It has to be in the float system...

A buddy came by and helped me readjust the float needle hooks. So far the leak has stopped. We are going to remove the fuel in the cyl this afternoon and see if that fixed it. I'll keep you posted and thanks for the help.

It would be a REALLY good idea to do an oil change as well. Odds are fuel has leaked past the rings into the crankcase. That will cause lots of problems.

Yeah, I picked up a couple of quarts yesterday. Thanks for the heads up though.
