OK,just occured to me I have seen this before.
If your bike was working fine when you parked it last and now it seems flooded the most likely explanation is that the diaphram in your fuel pump has failed allowing fuel to run directly into the intake manifold through the pulse line and into the engine.
You need to disconnect the fuel pump pulse line and block the intake/pulse line leak.Next drain the engine oil as it will be filled with fuel/oil mix. You will not be able to drain the oil completly because the reed valve will keep what is in the crank chamber.The oil will be diluted with mostly fuel.You will need to kick over the engine untill the oil in the crank chamber is expelled into the clutch chamber and then out the drain.
When all the fuel/oil is out refill the engine. Bypass or repair or replace the fuel pump install a new plug and it will start and run fine.

It does have a fuel pump. To lift from the right side of the tank to the left side.

I am refering to your pre 00 model.If you look on/under the rh side of your tank(the long side) you will see a square aluminum fuel pump with a piece of fuel looking line that goes to the piece betwee the carb ans cylinder head.

I just took mine off and cleaned it etc. It can fill up with dirt particles from tank circulation. check for any cracks/leaks inside. It is a stupid extra item on the bike but it is needed due to the low tank to get fuel high enough for fuel line to carb.

When you try to start maybe switch fuel off and kick for a while if you think it is flooded. Have you pulled carbie apart and cleaned it as well as inspected needle seat etc ? Also I don't use the throttle - just in idle position. worth trying with no choke as that has given me success when I couldn't start from flooded.

btw - I had a cobination of problems and was also ready to give up !!!

if you have the fc style tank with 2 petcocks, then you don't have a fuel pump. if it is the fee tank, you do. and if the diaphragm has a leak in it, the vacuum hose will suck raw fuel into the intake. to test, pull hose from intake and see if any wetness inside. if you're brave, suck on it and see if you get fuel.

thanks for theinputs guys to answer allyes i have the FC model good for simplicity on troubleshooting fuel probs i think what i may end up doing is seeing if i can t a carb guy like linaweaver do somthing to it
it must be the fuel issue cuz it does fire now and then
more than likely i will sell it for a less exotic model so if anyone is interested hit me up and look for pics in the gallery

One thing I haven't seen posted here is whether or not you are 100% positive it is in fact, getting fuel. The Delorto carbs are notorious for the float valve sticking which basically keeps fuel from filling the float bowl, hence, no gas to the combustion chamber.

Simple check:

• turn fuel petcock on making sure there is plenty of fuel on the left side of your tank.

• lean bike way over to the left for 10 seconds

• tilt bike back upright and watch for gas to dribble from the overflow tube

If you see gas dribbling, your float valve is working correctly.
If no gas is dribbling, your float valve is more than likely stuck.
On the short term, this may be corrected by simply tapping on the float bowl with a rubber mallet which may release the float valve. In the long term, purchase a new float valve assembly although, (even new assemblies can stick).

I used to carry a small rubber mallet in my gear bag just in case my bike didn't want to start first thing on the morning of a ride. Craftsman makes a nice small mallet by the way!

Aw comeon mberg, gettin it started can be frustrating. I know, I've been there. But don't sell it! If I were within 100 miles of you, I would be headin your way, we would get her started. By the way, times like this are why we refer to our bikes as "her" or "she". Have you taken the float bowl off? One big nut on the bottom center of the float bowl removes it. Then you can test the floats and float valve. Check for crud and dirt/sand type stuff in the bowl. Water in fuel can be an issue. If you are not at all familiar with carbs, you need to hook up with someone who is, just to give you a hand for a half hour.

I posted a whole maunual for dellorto carbs on here a week or two ago. I just pulled my carb apart and put it back together - didn't use the manual The only thing I had to worry about was the poisition of idling screws etc. Just made a mental note of how many turns and all is good. It had the same overflow issue when I initially put it back together but quickly sorted itself out with a tap on the bowl - I am assuming the tap fixed it I do think it was a sticking float and u got to pull them apart and check / clean.
