The rubber connecter for the carburetor is a good place to check also the shifter shaft seal.

While we're talking rebuild

I picked up a 76 125 with 800 miles on it. Rode it about a 1/2 mile changed all the gears. Got it home, ride it 2 miles, it wheezed and died. i can let it sit and warm for 15 minutes with no issues, but riding it always kills it.

Well, the clutch was shattered, I guess from the original oil and 35 years of sitting. I also replaced both crank seals and cleaned the carb, which was pretty darn clean. But I still have the same issue with riding it. It goes about 2-3 miles boggs down sneezing, sometimes it backfires. Pulled the plug each time, its not getting fuel. But it won't start again until its cooled. I did note that while the carb cover was off and I was rotating the engine w/o a plug in it that the fuel air was spitting out the side of the carb. And every time I opened the carb cover its coated in fuel oil mixture.

It has to be a seal? but I am running out of ideas.

I am currently about to change the oring in the rotorary valve, and hope thats the culprit.
