Carb Leaking... 2003 Yamaha 225TTR

Need help with my Carb on this bike.
First it started leaking from the bottom tube of the bowl.
So a friend mechanic said I need to clean it.
So I cleaned it and it leaked once in a while.
So mechanic friend said I need to change the carb needle and gasket.
So I bought the stuff and changed it and added a external filter.

Now the carb just leaks freely without even stopping. What the F---! So frustrated with this! Can someone tell me what might of happened here. I am lost.
This is called the Carb needle , Right! Here is a pic of what I replaced along with the gasket...what are the chances that the rubber ring slipped out of the canal when pushing it in the slot?

I just want to say that this forum is the most unhelpful forum as far as anyone responding for advice! The forum looks and seems professional but as far as helping others and answering questions, very sad and thumbs down TO this forum.
