my question is, what do I need to do to make it stop leaking I already took the carbs apart and cleaned the needles and floaters and even the little holes (SORRY don't know the specific names to the actual parts)

Check to see if the black plastic part crack or something....those r just linkages of the carbs I believe.

Did you mess with the float level? Otherwise I don't think fuel should leaking from there.
But soon enough Patrick will reply...he's a great guy with all the knowledge and advice.

P.s. You got more cleaning to do lol

There's o-rings that go on the fuel transfer tubes.
On a 24 year old bike they're probably hard/squared off.
Those o-rings typically do not come in a carb rebuild kit but can be ordered direct from Kawasaki; P/N 92055-1004 "O" RING, you'll need 6 of them.
I do keep a lot of the standard Mikuni o-rings in stock if you want to come by and try to match them up. Bring in the tube and o-ring if you come by.
Call or PM for the BEST PRICES in Houston for PARTS and ACCESSORIES.

NEED GEAR? We have a great selection in stock but if we need to order it we GUARANTEE FIT!
