I have a leak coming from my carborator... Both sides it seams, you can smell gas and see almost a condensation of gasoline built up on the skrews undernieth of it. I've tried a few things nothing seems to be working. I just bought the bike, it's a 88 kawasaki ex500. Any suggestions before I tear the thing apart this weekend?

Had the same problem on my '91. Tore the carbs apart and found debris holding the float needle open. Be sure to replace the float bowl gaskets while you're at. Good chance they're leaking due to age.
