Pissed OMG help the noob

So, I recently bought a 2004 Beta Rev 3. Being me, I had to clean it. It has always been hard to start, and today I had a really hard time. It seems to catch for a second, then wont start at all. also if I kick it, there was gas coming out of the overflows. I pulled the plug, black as night, and put a new one in, nada. I though it might be crud in the jets or something, so I pulled the carb off, ran guitar string wire through the jest, cleaned out the bottom and put it back on. NOW, when I turned on the gas, the gas was flowing out of this tube:

the floats seemed to be moving OK, but something is wrong I a supposed to ride tomorrow, and have really been looking forward to it, andy help?

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

If you're talking about that clear(ish) tube, that is the vent hose. If fuel is getting that high, then the float is most likely sticking open. There may be a piece of debris between the float needle and seat keeping it open. Inspect the float for free movement and make sure the needle and seat are clean. With the float bowl off, hook the carb. to the fuel inlet hose (or an aux. bottle) and turn the fuel valve on. When fuel starts flowing through the float valve, slowly lift the float up and see if the fuel shuts off when the needle contacts the seat. If so, you should have resolved that problem. May as well check float height while there. Also, if fuel has been flowing due to a stuck float, the engine may have filled with fuel as well. Might need to remove the spark plug and kick the engine through to make sure there is no fuel in the bottom end (keep the spark plug and cap away from the hole while doing this!!!!).

Yet another good reason to have two trials bikes!

Deb recently flooded her Sherco so bad that the crankcase filled up and the exhaust was full of gas!!

I had to pull the plug, turned it upside down and blew compressed air into the plug hole to get it dry enough to start.

Like NMTB said you probably got some dirt under the float needle. Usually when that happens, by the time you get in there to check it out, it has flushed itself out.

I just love working on bikes the night before a ride! .

Got her started and rode around my back yard loop in the dark, I am not a smart man. So I'm in with my sexy Italian tomorrow.

The Beta mikuni`s are hexed. Put a small V cut high on both vent tubes or they act like a vacuum and drain the carb.

PS. You have to turn off the gas always or she will flood. Did you notice what jets are in it. It was a Butler bike.
