Finally got the cb550 kinda running, but a back fire set flame to my carbs, fuel line, gas tank, and exterior of motor. Found out the hard way that one of the carbs was over filling. No real damage as I was able to hose everything down, after throwing the flaming gas tank into the yard. Damned fire extinguisher didn't work so thank god the hose was near by, as my bike was still in my back patio which is connected right to the kitchen.

Anyway, I had to hose all into the carbs and I'm worried what kind of damage could result from that and if there's anything I can do to remove any water that may have made it past the carb slides.

Now to go take a nap *heart pounding*
