    Running wide open

    I have a '91 Yamaha lx and it won't start without pouring gas in the carb, when i do get it started it funds wide open like it never has before, it even does this if i unhook the lines and only our gas in the carb, so i don't think it is the needle in the float because of this? any ideas?

    Sounds like a lean runaway which is usually caused by an air leak.

    Possibly popped out a rear crank seal?
