  • Mike G. Can you edit your question to include an image (or a link to an image stored on a public repository?) You might consider during the edit to make your sentences more readable. (hint, the use of a period and question marks make things easier to read.) – zipzit May 22 '16 at 18:18

Replace the float as well. Sometimes depending upon what material it's made the float can be somewhat soaked with fuel changing the weight of it.

Needle and seat issue

Your needle isn't hitting the seat in the float.

  • check for physical obstruction of the floats

  • always replace the needle and seat as a pair. They fit together.

  • ensure your floats actually float and do not have any holes in them

If you provide more information like the model of the bike we can provide a less generic answer perhaps. Please include model number of the carb as well as information about the needle you purchased.
