Fuel inlet pipe, originally press fit into the body by Keihin. Put a rubber plug into the float needle bore to seal it and then connect the carb to the tank to test for a leak. If it is leaking then you're looking at making a pipe and hopefully getting it to seal to the carb or finding a barbed screw-in fitting. There's not much material surrounding the pipe so this is an iffy repair.

Thank you for the info and tip. I connected the tube from the tank without the bowl and I was able to push up the float to stop the gas from going through so then the gas leaked through the inlet pipe. At this point I might just get another left carb. instead of trying to fix the inlet pipe.

That's probably the best way to get things going again. Then if you want to experiment with the leaker to see what can be done you're not bikeless

can i use the third gen carbs for my 69? Or do you have any recommendation on carbs to use?
