    Guys, fuel leak from carb inlet, would that be right.
    Front carb on pipe that enters carb?

    Has bike been in storage for some time?

    Might just be dry and seal up again.

    Thanks Boatman!!
    I went to ride the 950 this morning and noticed the bike was dripping gas when warming up, likely hadn't been on it in a month. After tearing into it and seeing the issue, was pretty shocked at the KTM price on a carb kit. the o-rings were fried. You saved me some $$$.

    I'm looking at moving to the Hendersonville, Tryon, Columbus, Mill Spring area - maybe I'll run into you some day.
