Hi mate, i would check the float height, if its not set right fuel can spill out of overflow when riding, would also do a plug chop if you change float height,

X2 lean your bike over with the fuel on and see what angle fuel starts to flow out should be about 50 deg thats a easy check! mine was heavy on fuel till I set it.

Good advice on the float level. BUT make sure it still revs as high as ever on full throttle, you dont want it running lean and holing a piston or nipping up :eek:

X2 on that!

Usually a tap with a screw driver stops it, the clean out defo proves the float height is suspect! its a very easy job and its more obvious what to do when you have it off the bike and up side down in front of you! (only saying that cos i didnt have a clue what the manual was on about..Doh!)
