Drz400s carb issue

What's up drz peeps?! Decided it was time to clean my mikuni carb... Kind of a kick in the crotch to get outta there..just sayin. But I managed to remove it and take it apart and see the disaster that was in there. Well I cleaned it up and did a good job of not getting any rubber or plastic components hit with the carb cleaner. But after reinstalling, I have a leak... I began to see the fuel glisten just around the float bowl and then drip off. Now I'm guessing it's either the needle, needle seat O-ring or bowl cap gasket. The float bowl gasket I tried cleaning with soap and water, it was covered with varnish and barnacles of various other filth, as well as cleaning the surrounding areas to remove any of said crap collected along the perimeter. So I'm curious if anyone thinks my bowl gasket is shot or if it's the needle/seat combo, orrrr if anyone else has any thoughts...? Also, since the carb is out, is it really worth installing the 3x3 mod? Thanks in advance!!
