1ST time on site. searched prior threads and didn't see a match. All winter started the bike but didn't ride it. Got it out a month ago and now it will start right up but floods out as soon as you give some throttle. 2 fresh plugs later the problem still exists. It is definitely getting way too much fuel. Every plug I take out is wet. When you try to roll on the throttle the carb spits out a mist of fuel and dies. Any thoughts?? Every gas pump in the area has at least 10% ethanol. A local bike mechanic seemed to think that the ethanol may have done something to my carb. Help?
