I have a 1979 gl1000, it appears that one of the carbs is flooding one of the cylinders. with the fule on it will start and run then it will start to run very poorly. If I turn the gas off the problem clears up untill the carbs run low on gas. The problem carb is on the right side-front and gas will actually come out of the carb but not sure from where, I have tried sea foam ect, I think I may have a stuck float or needle valve. What is the easyiest way to fix this problem, Thanks Jim G

Maybe one of the Mods can move this up to the tech section where it belongs and you will get some more responses.

Anyway Yes it sounds like you have a stuck float or a bad float valve and seat. there is no shortcut to fix this. The carbs have to come out and the problem identified and fixed.
