CLick the "more reply options" at the bottom.  Then browse to the file, upload it, and then add to post.

 

Also, a little more info would be helpful.  Like:

 

Year of the bike..

 

There's also a forum here dedicated to WR450s.

That's the idle adjustment

It won't 'pull' and is not connected to fuel

 

Your float is most likely stuck, and your are overfilling your floatbowl

 

Pull the cover and service the float needle / cavity / seat

Thank you for telling me. I know I must sound like a total newbie haha. I just got this bike this past weekend and some of this stuff looks weird and not like what my xr had. And when I did all this it was like 8:40 it was dark and i pulled something. I was pretty sure it was that. But anyways thanks again man, I was massly confused on what happend when I saw the fuel draining out the bowl.

We found out the drain screw vibrated loose causeing the carb to drain. Now where cahngeing oil every day to clean it out. When we first changed it yesterday it has almost no oil in it. We changed it and put a full amount in. Today when we checked it again it was pitch black! So we're gonna keep doin this till we clean it out so we got a clean engine.
