In my recent post, I had stated after getting bike back from Pistol Petes, the bike was running great other than a minor choke cable adjustment. Would you know it, after putting all the trim and extra parts on the bike, cleaning it and waxing it , ready to roll. I fired it up and.....Damn!!! Gas is coming out of the exaust.....What Now?

Well, if it's gas you have a stuck float, a bad float needle, a poorly set float height..are the most likely culprits..but check your oil if there is gas in it..time to change it..running it that way will burn youir bearings.

If Pete's got into the carbs AT ALL,, It's very possible one of the floats has become dislodged from the mount tabs which would cause the needle & seat to lay free in the bowl. A tear down is not neccessary if you can access the fuel bowls..

Sent the carbs back to P Pete. The smoke was the gas getting into exaust. So I have to do the whole thing over again:( Let you know the outcome.
