Mystery fuel leak 450 es

I found a huge puddle on the cement floor under the quad in the garage.
I only had less than 1/4 tank of fuel and there is some left. I'm not exactly sure where it's coming from.
Maybe I'm taking too many short trips and shutting it down? Could it be the float is stuck and fuel came out of the overflow?

do check your oil, in case, it has fuel in it..
my has an aroma of oil, with a slight smell of burnt oil.. i had waited to long on an oil change before. the 200es has been sitting due to a back problem, near a year.. some will say there might be a slight smell of gas. cant say i believe it, though it might be so..
i go along with the rebuild idea. get a good kit. i cant spell it right, shindy, is as close as i can get..
there are threads on carb cleaning here, including things to look for, while cleaning. maybe in maintenance and repair, for a start. ed
