Carb help something is missing

Hey all. I have been having issues since rejetting carb a couple years ago its never been quite right and i have had some fuel smells. Took out the carb to check he work i did and noticed that it looked like I had lost something out of the bottom. On one side of the carb is a nipple on plug. Same spot other carb is an empty threaded hole. Anyone know what I am missing? I dont remember taking anything out of there.

i think that is the carb heater on the left.... a friend just stopped by with her vstar and it had a rubber/plastic philips screw in it with a gasket which would explain the smell of gas i have been getting when I have shut down my bike.

it look's like an empty hole on this one also http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-V-Sta...dW3atS&vxp=mtr or maybe a nipple with a cap on it?

dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers
