06 Prowler 650 spitting fuel out the air intake.

My buddy has a 06 Prowler spitting gas out the air intake. It will start but sounds like it is starving its self gas and it spits gas out the intake. We took the carb off and looked at it close. Cleaned and checked the floats all seemed good. Re assembled and it is doing the same thing. We unhooked the ele choke and worked it manual and still having this issue. It is acting and sounding like it is flooding out but cant fig out why. We have the service manual and set the carb to spec's and even played with the mixture screw with nothing!! Any input would be may heal some head aches!!

Almost sound like the timing sliped a tooth or two,
But i'm not positive on that, i'm sure someone will chime in with the answer..

That would make it spit gas out the carb? This thing has not been run hard or anything.

Were not saying it was run hard, just that sometimes S#~! happens. I would call cat service and see what they say to be sure, but all fingers are pointing to timing. Thats just my opinion.

Do a compresion test, sounds like it could be a burnt intake valve.

Compression should be between 155 and 170 psi with a warm engine and with the throttle wide open during the test.
