Question about 2001 KTM Exc-Racing E 520
The most common issue with leaking fuel is the needle being stuck open. Usually this is from dirt or other foreign material getting into the fuel system.
Also, if your bike has been sitting for awhile, gas will gum up and clog the needle jet.
Your best bet is to remove and clean the carb.
Check to be sure fuel has not run into the crankcase and diluted your oil. If it has, change oil immediately. A good way to check is to open the oil fill plug and smell the opening.
