Thanks, guys. The screw was seated tightly, so I don't think it's that. How involved is it to replace the needle and seat? Would that cause the carb to start leaking a lot of gas, all of a sudden? Are there any other possible causes?
Could be a worn needle and seat. Easy to change out. Could also be just trash stuck in the needle and seat. Both will cause the carb to overflow and gas could also run into the cylinder and fill the crankcase with gas. Check your oil for the smell of gas! Change oil and filter if needed. Always turn off the main fuel petcock to the carb when not riding or when transporting/trailering to prevent fuel from overflowing into the cylinder and flooding the engine.
