Yes the alternator is oil wet to lube the starter gears and sprag clutch. (And balancer bearings, balancer & cam chains & sprockets)
The EPA approved carb does Not have the brass over-flow stand pipe like dirt bikes and vintage bikes. If it floods the EPA wants us to fix it properly.
GoMotor forgot to mention, "use metal polish on a Q-Tip" to clean/polish the Non-replaceable float valve seat.
There is an Idle Air Cut-OFF diaphragm under the small round aluminum cover on the LH side of the carb. It and the plastic fuel & vent nipples are held on with a steel bracket and 2 Phillips screws.
There is a VERY Stout Spring under that cover.
A pin-hole in that little diaphragm will cause after-fire/popping in the Exhaust under trailing throttle.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
