If it is flooding when cold, it would not be the needles.

Look at inlet valve in the bowl.
They tend to stick(mine did) so you should replace them or at least inspect them.

Good luck.

The inlet valve is in the bowl, it is better to remove carbs from sled to remove 4 screws holding bowl.


When was the last time the carbs were cleaned(taken apart).

All you need maybe is a good cleaning.

Good luck.

i cleaned them 2 years ago while changing tthe needle & seat.ran good last year but only went out a few times.i`ve been out 3 times this year , but only had this problem once, with the exception of it always being hard on fuel. should i move the clip up 1 more ring (drop one more setting on the needle, or is this a carb setting problem.
hope to get up early tomorrow to fix to go for a rip tomorrow late morning, s any ideas tonight would be great
thanks all

Don't drop needles or change main jets without reading your plug color. you will be asking for a burndown. gas is still cheap compared to a burndown or worse. And the inlet valve he was talking about is your needle and seat.
