Finally completed cleaning the carbs and getting everything back together (After much searching locally to replace bad/missing o-rings). Went to fire it up and she fired right up, didn't even had to crank it forever like before. Good so far. Shut her down and after a couple of minutes I glanced over and I got gas pouring out of the right carb. Shut off the g Petcock and waited a minute, then turned it back on, looked like it might be the float bowl gasket, but it was hard to tell. Took a break for an hour, turned the petcock back on to locate the leak, but the leak is nowhere to be found. Fired her up again, several times over the next 30 minutes, still no leaks. Could the float have gotten stuck and then unstuck? Any ideas here.

It looked to be leaking either from the joint between the bowl and carb main or somewhere above it. Is there an overflow or something somewhere on the carb.



Anyway, Just got back from riding it about 5 miles and still no leak. I think it was a stuck float that is now unstuck.
