I will have a very strong spray of gas out of the accelerator pump nozzles, then it goes down to nothing and the bike dies, I replaced the fuel pump, put a electric fuel cutoff valve, new fuel filter, I did lower the floats because the bike was running very rich, could that have anything to do with the problem? If it was the accelerator pump would it work sometimes and not others? Carbs are rebuilt, Ran good for a few miles, then started this problem. Thanks

You should not have fuel coming out of the accel nozzles unless you twist the throttle, it will then give just 1 squirt. If it comes out constantly while running something is definitely wrong as in a check valve missing or stuck open in the pump circuit.

How much did you lower the floats? They really need to be set as close as possible to the factory spec.
