Another carb question
Having carb/idle problems on my 2000 V-Star 1100. It was running fine yesterday and then I filled it up a couple miles from home. Went to ride to work this morning and it won't idle while stopped at a light or stop sign, it just dies. Also seems to run a little off, I've had it since January and seems like I've spent more time working on it than riding it. Got it back home before work and came home today after work and put octane booster in it thinking I got some bad gas. Then I find gas pouring out of a nipple in between the heads.
Do I need to rebuild the carbs or is there a trick? My neighbor says to give tiny squirting of carb cleaner in the intake while running. Will this possibly work or cause more problems?
I got about 40mpg on the tank right before I filled it up yesterday.
