This sounds like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb and clean it with a spray carb cleaner. Pay special attention to the float needle. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb. Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Now would be a good time to install an in-line fuel filter if you don't already have one.
Install new stock spark plugs AFTER you make sure that the bad cylinder is getting spark. Be sure to balance and sync the carbs when finished.
Please rate this solution as " FixYa " if all goes well. Thanks

tap the bowl with a block of wood. Eventually you will need to take off the carb, diassemble it, and soak all the parts in solvent for an hour
