ok so my problem was:
jarring the sammi made it stall, then acted flooded and would usually restart in a minute. (started last week)

yesterday it didnt want to restart on the trail so we looked and found (1)some kinda chunky wet stuff in the bottom of carb above the valve. looks like tree bark maybe. it wasnt there last time i looked. (2) the charcoal filter next to the battery was leaking fuel at a fast pace. i wont have time to look at it for a couple of days so umm, wtf do i do?

what i know....... get the stuff out of carb. clean carb real good with brake clean. read here for more info.

short of an upgrade like Bill suggested, I would say change the fuel filter and maybe add another just before the carb. if there is something coming loose of flaking in your lines it will end up in the carb and plug up the needle and float. if it seems like it is flooding the float is stuck open.

And some Seafoam after new filters, then new filters again.
