On the front of the carburetor it has a diaphragm fuel pump and after I start it theres two little holes were gas comes slowly leaks from. The holes look like factory holes. My other twin has the same thing but doesnt leak

Sounds like the pump diaphram is shot.

Today I took the fuel pump apart and didnt see anything wrong so I kept looking and noticed that the diaphragm was in backwards. So I flipped it around and it stopped leaking. Very Happy
