Alright guys finished my bike up today, started it, its running great. But my carb is leaking from the fuel mixture screw, I put in an MSR one specifically made for my carb in and the o-rings and little metal washers are in place and in order. And it also seems to be leaking from the float bowl itself, I took it apart and cleaned it checked everything out seemed to be okay but it started doing it again after this, what am I missing thats causing this to happen?

 

Thanks in advance.

The carb itself sat for over a month but prior to sitting this long I cleaned it out.

Pull the float needle and inspect for wear and replace if any grooves are present in the rubber

More than likely the seat is pitted, or the needle is not moving smoothly due to corrosion in it's cavity

Will do! Is it possible also that the float bowl gasket is bad feel like I may have pinched it or something and tore it, and also no fuel is leaking out of over flow tube either.
