starting/flooding problems

I cannot get my bike to start (02 426). I thought I flooded it so i drained the float bowl and fuel kept pouring out, so I turned the fuel tank off and that stopped it. I figured the floats were stuck so I took the float bowl off and sprayed cleaner into it and the floats moved freely a (it did not appear dirty at all anyway). I don't know what would cause this any help would be much appreciated, I need to fix this asap, I missed riding today because I could not figure it out last night.

draining the float bowl will keep the flow coming (the gas stops flowing as the float rises in the bowl,therefore requiring a full bowl to stop) if it was stuck open there will be gas flowing out of the overflow tube. thats probly not your problem from what you describe :thumbsup:
