    1998 1200 flooding - HELP

    it started runnin like crap. rebuilt as outlined on here new mikuni kits. 'popoff' is set to 75lbs and hold pressure. will run and idle fine for about 1-2 mins then it starts pouring gas out all 3 venturis and wont stop until shutoff. just a stock machine. my local dealer says its too old for him to work on.

    The needles are lifting too far in the seat and sticking open. Make sure the control arm that the spring rest under is not bent upward. All three need to be sitting level with the carb casting.

    they are even when u put a razor blade across the casting as fercho outlined in his rebuild guide. i did somemore searching as read low idle may do it cause it shakes so bad. seemed to cure it on the stand?? had idle at 1500 on water on stand raised to 3000 and seems fine. might something still be wrong?

    If it's not flooding on the stand now, you should be good to go. Its not flooding anymore, right?
