So the other day took 2001 v Star 650 out for first ride of the year. Smelled gas, got a few miles, determined it was coming from the bike, tried to get back home, bike died, towed home , now trying to fix. Removed tank and breather box from top of carbs , took bowl off front carb expecting to have stuck needle valve. Float and needle valve came out with no problems so that needle did not seem to be stuck. Put carb back together, put breather box back on, and now when I tighten the clamp that holds the breather box to the top of the carb throat it pushes the rubber boot up and off of the carb. When I first removed the breather box it came off with no problem, I did not even have to loosen those clamps which didn't seem right. I'm pretty sure that's where the gas was leaking out of ...where the breather box connects to the top of the carb throat as far as I could tell at the time. Any thoughts?
