After replacing the jets with slightly larger sizes to try and optimize my scooter, my scooter will flood itself gas from the idle circuit, I think. I reset the idle mixture screw to 2.5 turns out from tight. The first time I took the carb apart, the float was out of adjustment, so I bent the metal tab to get it level with the carb housing when upside down. The same thing happened after a short test ride. I had to push the scooter home. It was evident too much gas was being supplied as I had a wet plug and gas sitting in the air intake hose. I took the carb apart and the float had creeped back to the same position, so I ordered a rebuild kit to get a new float.
A week later, I put the new float in and made sure it was level with the carb housing. When I started it up, it idled okay for about 15 seconds then started to bog down like it was too rich. To keep it running, I'd have to rev it up and hold the rpm's, then it would get super rich and die if I let it go back to idle. What should I check next? TIA
