Hey guys. After i came back from doin some laps i noticed that gas was pouring out the drain tube at the bottom of the carb. I took the drain screw out and put it back in. But gas was still coming out. even if i turned to petcock off gas was still coming out...just not as fast. Had the drain the tank. Think i stripped the screw?

you have a particle of dirt lodged somewhere in the float bowl or slide in the float -
You have to completely remove the float bowl to get to the slide to clean it out -
Check your gas tank for dirt both on the bike and your refill
