New o-rings solved the fuel leak at the carbs. It wasn't easy finding six o-rings that are fuel compatible, on a Saturday morning. After buying an o-ring set from Napa and abandoning them because the closest one was just slightly to big, I ended up in the 'HELP' section at Advance buying several sets of these brown o-rings. They are made for fuel usage, so I should be good. The other sizes that came in the pack will go in the o-ring bin for some other use one day.
After syncing the carbs everything went back together without issue and the first road test showed promise. Man this thing likes to rev! The trans is sharper too; more positive shifts.
This morning the bike is getting loaded for a 6 day work trip to NC. I might run by the Bull City Rumble on my way back. http://tonup.bigcartel.com
Thanks for everyone's help and input. I'll try to post during or after the trip today and let you all know how it goes.
