Unhappy front carb leak

Found a leak in the front carb this morning and I don't know exactly where it's coming from. A carb rebiuld looks likely. Does anyone know where i can buy a carb rebuild kit for a '90 VN750? Thanks all!

Jerry -

Either Ron Ayers or Bikebandit will have any parts you might need. Both have exploded views from microfilm that you can see the separate parts.

However, your leak intrigues me. Did you check the fuel line feeding that carb in case in has split? Check the bowl drain screw to make sure it is closed. There are not a lot of places for these carbs to leak from. I had a bad oring on my bowl cover and it leaked pretty good, but it was bad when I put it back on. Previous person in there had sealed it with gasket maker.

Curious what you will find as the source, let us know.
