My 05 750 is snorkeled , and I cannot pinch off the carb drains without having the engine bog down when the carb is over full. I took a Tropicanna Orange juice bottle, drilled a hole in the lid to slide the carb overflow tube into it. I then discovered that when that bottle was overfill, the engine would bog out. I then added another hole to the lid of the catch bottle , installed weed wacker sized fuel line from the upper 1/4 of the bottle to the handlebars. Works like a charm. If you drill your holes in the lid right, no water gets in. If it fills with gas, just unscrew the lid, remove the bottle and reuse the gas. You would be surprised of how much gas you lose. I'm sure my floats are set on the higher end, but they work fine. Oh yeah, the carb overflow line should have a one way check valve on the end of it, so water can not seep back up the line to the carbs. If your carb vent lines, on the left side of the carbs, get blocked up, you will stall out too.
