So last night I re-installed my carbs after setting floats.
Ran it for about 15 minutes. Didn't notice any problems.

Today I walk up to it and notice after sitting overnight, it seems to be leaking oil out the exhaust pipe right where the slip joint for the header/exhaust bolt together (just below rear corner of valve cover area)

Now about a week or so (100 miles)ago I added some Sea Foam to the oil and gas per directions.

So where's it coming from and why??????:baffled::baffled::baffled:

you may have blown a seal at the header gasket?

Never mind Mike:gunhead::
What I thought was oil was GAS!!

Stuck float???

So I just pulled the carb assembly off(3rd time:X)

Now I know from other posts you're pretty knowledgeable on the carb issue. So please explain it again, how do you set these boogers??

I know it's 21mm.

Doug, sometimes just tapping the float bowl will stop a leak. Floats often stick when you are refitting carbs and a tap of a screwdriver handle very often seats the float properly.

A gopod tip for carbs is that when you assemble them keep them in the upright position to minimize the chances of the float sticking or moving off the needle.
