Weasle: if it is an S&S, there is a piece of junk in the needle valve. Pull the fuel line off, let the gas drain out of the bowl, then put a CLEAN piece of line on it and blow the junk out of the seat. If it is a tillotsen or Kehin, you will probably need to take it off and clean it.

not a plugged jet, or the gas would not be running out. The float is stuck is what is wrong.

lemme know what kinda carb it is...if it is a Kehin, it will say that on the side facing toward the back of the bike. ( I think)

how long has it been sitting if at all?
