Default carb bowl leaking fuel

     

My bike (yz426) is leaking fuel out the overflow tube for the carb bowl. I took the carb off and cleaned it reinstalled and it still leaks. Did I not clean it well enough? Is the float out of adjustment?

Sounds like the float is out of adjustment. Your manual can walk you through this or I know Faded is great at educating us all. Hail to the mighty faded. Good luck

Like KKXR400R said, it could be your float out of adjustment. OR also little bit trash in the float needle/seat area, or a worn out needle valve itself.
