There are lots of places, the bowl gasket, the o rings in the plenum to carb connections, the bowl drains, up into the throats and then out someplace..

check your oil for gas..if it's in there leaking float needle..up into the air box and down into the cylinders not good!!

Don't waste over 100 bucks buying carb re-build kits till you determine what's leaking. A tap on a bowl will maybe seat a leaking needle valve, if that's the case then I get some seafoam into the tank and ride it like I stole it. Just might clear it up for 8 bucks instead of 100 bucks.
