Gotta dis-agree on this one... A leak like this is above the carb, hence will not at all affect the fuel/air mixture that subsequently occurs downstream, after the air has passed through the carb. An air leak above the carb will only By-pass the air filter... which is bad, because you'd be drawing dirty air into the carb.

Again, "K&N Air Filter Grease" is your friend on this joint.
