    We un-stuck the float and it got worse. That's when I said "if you get it fixed, call me" and left.

    I considered offering him $500 for the thing as-is (i.e. not running).
    Well, if you get it fixed I'd be interested to know, probably not gonna take a look at it for a few weeks.

    That's what I was thinking. I had actually looked at it but not tried to fix yet. Im assuming just take the bowl off and clean it out with some carb cleaner?
    That may work, depending on how dirty it is. You might have to reset the float height, which would be easier to do with the carb off the bike.

    Worse case scenario, you may also need to replace the float needle (cheap) because sometimes the little rubber tip wears out, and it won't seal properly.

  • The problem was the floats? were in upside down. (I know fuckall about carbs.) He says it runs great now. We're looking at it tonight, and if she can start it, it'll likely come home with us.

    You'd have to be a special kind of retarded to install floats upside down. I'd have to sit down for a while, just to figure out how to do that.

    Ask him what else he's "fixed", before you take the plunge.

  • Well we picked it up. 800 bux for a decently running bike, how wrong could we go? There's no water pump, e-start or FI to go wrong, it's just so simple.

  • Yeah, those floats weren't upside down, he was full of shit. It's pissing gas again. Goddammit.

  • It held gas long enough for her to crash into my car with it. Not a good start.
