So I just picked up an unmolested low hour 2000 XR650R(plated!) in ridiculously nice condition. Super excited about this bike and what all i'm gonna do to it. However, despite all of the bikes general awesomeness, the carb is having a fuel retention issue. What I mean is...It spills fuel out pretty much all the time, except for when its not running. :eek1:eek1 When I'm kicking it over(and having no luck), it seems to start spilling a steady stream of fuel out of one of the hoses even though the engine isn't flooded, and eventually stops if I quit kickin'. Once I get the bike started, it just seems to flow steadily to no end! :huh It doesn't matter where the rpm is at, idle or part throttle, it just keeps flowing until a few seconds after I turn the engine off. The guy who had it before me had it for a very short time and bought it at an estate sale from a deceased guy(didn't die on the bike). So he told me he disassembled and cleaned the carb because it had been sitting for so long without use. Now i'm no carburetor guru...Heck, who am I kidding, I am severely lacking in carburetor knowledge and have no real idea what could cause this. Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?
