    Having just finished my first bike (but having years of experience wrenching on cars) I find myself puzzled. When my bike sits overnight I find that it floods and is very hard to start the next morning. I have no air leaks, have checked the float level, inspected for dirt in all passages and float leaks. Nothing! I was told by the company that I bought it from that the recommended gas mixture of 16:1 should be changed to something above 20:1. I reluctantly did it and of course it didn't change a thing. Anybody got any other suggestions.
    I appreciate this forum and have read some really good advice. Right now I'm open to all suggestions.

    You need a proper carburettor setup.
    Do a Google search for:

    Float height is correct and float has been check for pin holes - nothing there. Also, as a former motor cycle rider of many years, I always turn the petcock off. Thanks for the reply.

    That is a very involved and complex solution to a simple problem. There are tons of people out there running NT carb's without problems. There has to be a simple solution but thanks for your input.

    I appreciate the reply but I've never been a fan of putting it in a lean condition by running it out of gas.
