fuel leak

just a little reminder,to let all the members know to check out there buggys before each ride.I have been smelling fuel coming from my prowler for 3 weeks now couldn't see where it was coming from,took it out the other night for a ride and still kept smelling fuel.Also I have noticed it hasn't been holding its prime after it sits for a couple of days,and I just put a fuel filter with a check valve on it and it works great.when putting my shoulder harnesses on I had the seats and seat bases out of it,I could still get a smell of fuel every now and then,well I found the problem,I just happened to look down at the starter and the top of motor had gas laying on it,got to looking it was leaking fuel around the cup that threads into the float bowl on my mikuni carb,I took the cup off and the o-ring was shot.lucky It didn't catch on fire............
