so last night I started taking the whole thing apart. I accidentally left it on PRIME overnight and couldn't get it started. I ended up changing oil and oil filter, air filter, and taking the tank off as well as drained the carbs of any fuel. When I changed my oil, it started seeping normal then it started gushing out a ton of gas, it was like I turned on a faucet on blast. Picked up where I left off this morning. New oil and oil filter, new air filter. Now I'm trying to crank it and it's just not starting. My guess is that there is no fuel in the carbs to get it going. It wants to somewhat start, seems like it's barely turning over. I read on KR that it will take a while to get the bike started again. Anybody have any ideas? I'm trying to be patient and continue testing, I just want to make sure i'm not missing something here.

First, you need to replace the float needles in your carbs. Then, you turn it to prime for 30 seconds or so to refill the carbs.

right, but I would just like to go with the temporary fix of getting it started again. I don't have the time and money to get the carbs resynch'd at the moment. I will try switching it to PRIME for a few. Thanks!

started putting some rim tape on my wheels. Couldn't finish it last night as it's one of those broken down graphic types with separate pieces. Cleaned her up and took her on a ride to get the juices flowing back into her since my incident a few days ago. Ready to ride her!
