I am looking to buy a raptor from this guy and he told me that gas leaks from the carburetor and I don't know nothing about it just seeing if anyone can help what could the worse case be wrong with it and what is the most it would cost.

needles and seat prolly need replaced. costs about 20 bux per carb, so about 40 bux for both. not hard to change if ur at least slightly mechanically inclined...

Worst case? Clean the carbs, replace the float valves and valve seat o-rings.
