Default Oil leak lt80

Wondering if anybody else has this issues. I have fresh two stoke oil dripping from where the starter is. Its not mixed with gas. I cant figure out where its coming from. When atv sits it dripping in that area by the starter. I have looked and cant pinpoint it. I thought it was coming from the line going in the carb but that seems fine.

Any thoughts

Looks like its coming from the bowl on the carb. Question should oil be dripping out of the oil line when engine is not running. I guess the bowl gasket is bad.

The oil comes from the resivoir down to a small pump just above the belt drive, then goes to the carb, don't know how it can be dripping from the starter area. Have you cleanup up the area with brake cleaner so you can verify exactly where the oil is coming from? If fresh oil is dripping, could be the pump is shot and the oil is flowing past it and going to the carb as it is lower than the resivior, it could be possible for it to gravity feed past a blown pump.

Found the problem. When I rebuilt the carb the o-ring that goes between the carb and spacer was not there. Oil was dripping from the carb threw the oring space.

Cool

At least I wasn't sneaking into his garage and stealing his LT80 tool pouch, and loosening the oil line................
