unless you change them all i know it 15 buck a piece... you can take the carbs into a shop and get them vacuum tested for leaks... that will do it my 96 xcr i changed them all

CHECK YOUR FUEL PUMP BECAUSE YOU MIGHT BE GETTING GAS THROUGH THE PULSE LINE AND INTO YOUR CRANKCASE

After you drained it did you see more fuel accumulate after it sat for while? If not then I wouldn't be too woried unless it was a large amount of fuel. There is always going to be a small amount of fuel sitting in the crankcase after shut down, this fuel will be used up on the next start.

pardon my ignorance, but how does one know if one has gas in his crankcase?

thier is 2 or 3 10mm bolts under your pipe in the crankcase in the front
of motor just take em outand drain
99% sure you have leaking needle and seats make sure you get the new viton tip needle part number 3130643 for 38mm carbs cant remeber 34mm number leaking diaphram in fuel pump will cause this too but not as comin both carbs and fuel pump can be checked with mighty vac.
