I have a 2000 R6.
Im clueless with carburetors.

Bike hardly starts. Usually smells of gas (no puddle under it) and backfires within seconds of turning the key from cold. Once cranking for a few seconds it sounds like I’m getting detonation in the exhaust.

I believe the carbs a filling with fuel, likely a float/needle getting stuck and flooding out the engine.
Sound reasonable? I suppose I should look into a rebuild kit before digging into the no starting issue?
