Just draining the carburetor bowl sometimes isn't sufficient. If there are dirt particles in the drained fuel, that would indicate that there's a good chance that there is residual dirt in the carb bowl as well as elsewhere in the carb. You can give the bowl a good flush to see if that works. Otherwise, the bowl must come off of the bottom of the carb by removing the screws that hold it on. Sometimes the carb can be left on the machine but with the hose clamps from the air box and to the manifold loosened. Clean the carb and area around it thoroughly. Make sure your cable(s) have enough slack then rotate the carb so the bottom is facing sideways to access the screws. Carefully remove the float bowl and make sure you do not bang or make hard contact with the float(s). Do a thorough inspection and cleaning of the bowl and bottom of the carb and replace. I'm attaching a PDF file of the AC parts diagrams and lists that include the carburetor. Check the component list on the left side of the file, find carburetor and look it over. It'll help you understand the carb better. Good luck.
