Question Help! Why is my Kodiak leaking gas??

Just recently my Kodiak started leaking fuel out of the hose line that connects to the bottom of the carb. (is this a drain line for the bowl?) See pics, any idea why this is leaking? I tried tightening the screw at the carb but it didnt budge..Please help!

Default clean your carburetor

my big bear 400 did the same thing.it was the over flow on the fuel bowl.dirty or sticky needle and seat.try cleaning it with carb spray and air.you may need to get a carburetor rebuild kit.hope this helps.

you will need to take it apart and remove the needle and float to clean it . be careful with the gasket and use a proper size screwdriver to remove the screws of the fuel bowl(so you will not strip the heads).use a small brush and a small pick or flat head screwdriver to carefully remove any derbies and spay with carburetor cleaner ,making sure to spray in all the holes and jets. be sure to clean the outside of the carburetor before you open it.

Damn, i was afraid of that. May have to bring it in for this one. Ive cleaned small engine carbs before but never an ATV carb..
