Okay guys I just recently went from a yz250f to a 450f and I rode it and it was running great straight ripping it then I went and parked it and tons of gas was coming out of the lines coming from the carb. The only thing I can think that it can be is the carb float needle is dirty so it isn't shutting it off . What do you guys think am I on the right trAck or way off??
