i would say it would be leaking from the front bearing, i had the same problem with a go-tech. Sometimes the seal just pops off the bearing but can be easily put back in.

That can be alot of things. Make sure your fuel lines aren't leaking and the carb fuel nipple is snug, tank not leaking, etc., Does your engine have the orange front bearing seal? They changed front bearings a while back, but I would assume the front bearing should not be dumping out fuel. If so, something is wrong. If the mixture is set properly, that much fuel should not be down in the crank nose. Maybe oil from break-in (rich mixture), but even at that, it should be sweating out, not leaking. Onroad engines run metal shields and fuel doesn't come out of the front nose unless someone flooded the engine, and it won't run when that happens.
