Hey all, been doing some reading on this issue, but haven't nailed down anything definitive. I just rebuilt my carbs, ear shaved, rejetted, etc. Everything rubber was replaced, o-rings, diaphragms, fuel lines. Got the bike running, and now my carbs are leaking like crazy. It looks like the leak is coming from the float bowls. When I rebuilt the carbs I did not replace the needle valves as the rubber still felt great, nice and sharp. One thing I'm seeing in some of the rebuild threads that I totally missed and neglected to do was to adjust the floats. Could this be what is causing the leak, or is there some other stupid mistake I could have made?

Floats could be stuck, sometimes firmly rapping the carb bowl with a plastic screwdriver handle can free them.

Always shake the float when it's removed to be sure it hasn't filled with gas.
