Hi everyone, I just finished reinstalling my carbs after cleaning and noticed one float bowl is leaking a little after running the bike.

I did use brand new float bowl gaskets when putting it back together.

My question is, am I able to stop the leak without tearing everything back apart? Could it just be tightening the screws a little more? (I'll need to buy a 90° tool to get in there first)

The leak is forming at a screw that is not one of the 4 that fasten the bowl, but im assuming it's the bowl that's leaking.

did you do a wet test on the float levels. before fitting to establish the levels are not too high.
