    It seems that the little discharge hose coming from the carb isn't doing it's job... the carb is dripping gasoline from the bottom after I ride. What's up with this?

    Funny you should mention that. Mine started yesterday. Most likely it's in the float..either a bit of dirt in the bowl needle and seat or a adjustment on the float. If it's float adjustment the tab on the needle needs a slight bend. Open the clearance for less fuel and closer for more fuel. I suspect I has a piece of trash, but with my inline filter I don't know how.

    Borrowed this photo from a member....

    Opened up the float bowl, removed some dirt particles, its' not dripping anymore. Thanks
