    other bike question

    working on a suzuki rv 90 a two stroke bike. I got it running the other day after sitting neglected for a number of years. out on a ride it quit and wont run now. It has 120 psi compression and has spark but wont fire even if i spray starting fluid in the cylinder. I tried starting it many times but all that happened is that it started leaking fuel out the carb. Who has ideas? I think the carb thing is a seperate issue or is it related?

    Float valve maybe bad and letting too much fuel into the engine. Is the spark plug wet?

    My XT float was letting too much gas into the carb float bowl and overflowing. This also caused it to stall and not run i.e. "flooding the engine". I reset the float and all is good now.
