you must carefully examine them to identify the exact source of the leak which will determine correct action and parts to replace. Rail or bowl orings are obvious suspects. If the source is coming through an airbox boot, float system would be suspect. As you describe the carbset is "new" to you, they are in reality, actually pre-owned? Personally, I'd pull, split, totally refurb them....end of problem with a long service life to boot.

As a side note:
Not related to the carb leak.

You're missing this hose that connects the crankcase to the air box.
I won't get into the why's to replace it, and with a genuine OEM part. As you have demonstrated you want you're bike to run, and run properly. The good news is, this is an easy and relatively cheap fix.
