have you checked the oring on the carb????also if it is good you might wanna try a fine bead of high temp silicone on the oring that will seal it up...just use a tooth pic or something to apply the silicone and dont put to much...

Are you sure it's not leaking from the front bearing? U might just have a case of the standard JP front bearing leak.

I don't think you can do anything about it! Even when i have changed front bearings it still seems to pump it out by the litre. The best way i think to tell if it is leaking out the front bearing would be to look parrallel with the engine's flywheel and see if there is any fuel there. For example with my EVO i have fuel all on the radio plate support. If u do want to get them out i think heating up the crankcase with a hair dryer or heat gun would do the trick.
