My wife is giving me the stinky eye lately because our garage smells like a refinery.

I did Dave's mods two weeks ago and love the power difference, but after riding for a while and parking the bike it has a small amount of gas collecting on the bottom of the bowl. It is not enough to drip, but just enough to drive my wife crazy. Any help would be appreciated!:ride:

Float level too high? Float valve not seating well?

take it off and fix what you did to make it leak
Daves mod does not adjust float level
I would say it the bowl

I took it apart again and found that the bowl wasn't seated well and was slightly leaking. I cleaned it, put it back together and all is now well!
