Question Leaking petcock

So lately my bike has been dying out on me after giving it a quick twist of the throttle and also i have to leave my bike on reserve for the bike to run correctly… i have already taken out the carbs and sprayed them down with carb cleaners and they weren't to dirty but thats has been already thought of.My petcock is also leaking the smallest amour of gas from the bottom of it. if anyone could help me this trouble shooting i would greatly appreciate it.

The rubber sealant gaskets may need to be replaced on the petcock.

i had checked it out and the diaphragm seemed to be still working… but even with the petcock leaking a little bit of gas would that explain the dying out of the bike when at an idle and giving it gas and having it die out?

If air is leaking out of the system anywhere then it could bog down. The carbs work as a vacuum system and if there's a leak of air or gas, air is both escaping and getting into that system and corrupting it. Just my opinion. I'd get that fixed asap and maybe the problem will be fixed.

If that doesn't do it, are the carbs synced? If they're out of sync, that would definitely be the issue.
