You can try giving some soid taps on fuel/float bowl.Use some thing and hold like a pool que put some tape on the end if metal so you don't mar it.If this doesn't work you have to find out if something is stuck in side bowl.~Happens a lot when a new fuel hose is installed and end was splintered.~Then have to get piece/s out.Good Luck! pan-k~onion-pan

Longjia 125cc raptor had problems with fuel leaking from the bottom of the carb and though the air filter. Just put a new carb on OK for a few day now doing the same any clues please


New carbs aren't known for leaking unless you had it open and altered some thing. A float can get stuck if you let it sit without using it. Should put stable in your tank and run it so thestable gets into the carbs.
Check above the carb for a gas leak from the gas hoses and check the gas tank. They may be running down onto the carb and just appears like the carbs leaking

Gas leak when I put the scooter on the kickstand


I own an Andretti M50 and I had 2 different gas leak problems, and neither was a stuck float.
- the gas filter that comes with the bike is a 2-piece screw together unit and the gasket between the 2 pieces leaks gas down onto the cylinder!
I replaced with a $3 one piece from Pep Boys.
- the second leak the gas just poured onto the ground. It was caused by poor design and tight tolerances where the fuel line attaches to the carb. The fuel line would get guillitoned every time you hit a bump by the engine swinging the carb tight against the frame. I rotated the carb in its manifold away from the frame. (you have to cut the nubs off the carb manifold to rotate it).
