So i replaced the parts included in the needle valve kit. After inspection of the valve, i could see no wear marks. I replaced the entire kit anyways, since i had it apart. After putting it all back together, starting for a few minutes, the carb is still leaking. I tapped the side of the card with a rubber malet, to see if the float was sticking, and guess what, no more leak. I did this about 3 more times, same result. So looks like the float is sticking. Any ide'as why? I have not bought a new float yet, just looking for some input to see if ayone else has had this problem. Float takes a week to get, and i want to go ridde this weekend. Any thoughts if i just tap the carb before killing the bike, at least until i get the float?
