Not sure if it would apply , but , Keihin carbs for the big Hondas have a similar problem . Only it's the float needle seat that usually presents issues . The needles have rubber tips and can also be bad .

Anyway , we polish the seats with Q tips and Brasso , or the like , until they have a mirror shine . That generally solves the weeping .
