Default Mikuni trouble

I was running at Santa Pod yesterday during my burnout I noticed a fuel leak from around the carburettor, back in the pits I found it to be coming from the brass vent tube just above the fuel inlet, I removed the float bowl and checked the float height....way to high
I adjusted it and tried again now it was still coming out of the small diameter plastic pipe when giving full revs, I put a small cable tie around that and tucked it out sight
Every thing is clean inside the carb and the needle jet
Any ideas or suggestions

It's a mikuni HSR 42
