The most likely place for a leak is where the throttle shafts enter/exit
the carb bodies.  There are four places this happens.  The throttle shaft
is a brass rod.  There are two of them that are connected between the
carbs by a springy looking connector piece.  Over time the rod, and
sometimes the carb body itself, will wear allowing air to enter those
places.  If you have a leak you can sometimes just replace the rods and
it will be fine.  In other cases, you might have to get the carb body
rebushed and oversized shafts installed.  The latter will have to be done
by a professional.

Hope this helps!
