Hey guys just signed up as i just got a Tx500. GOt the carbs tuned and oil filter replaced and new plugs, but my bike seems to rev at high RPM's when i apply the clutch and hangs there when I'm in 4th or 5th gear, and the left carb is leaking from that spot in the image but like i said the left carb, any help would be appreicated,

as I would have thought rev = high RPM's ?

the leak in the carb would indicate an issue with the float or needle jet .. that said as the carbs are old they may have just gone past their sell by date :)
