Fuel comming from the over flow is due to the float needle not sealing.
causes, dirt in the seat, worn needle, float is leaking and sinking or tang is broken.

If the bike has been sitting for a few weeks try draining the fuel bowl and once it starts to flow again tap float bowl.

then try dirt in bowl.

is the fuel only leaking when running or starting? or just sitting.
if it just sitting and its laeking the fuel vac tap is faulty..

1992 FXRS Dyna Glide. Gas leaking from overflow valve off the carburetor. Help please!

If it is a continuous flow the vacuum operated shut off valve is likely defective and not shutting off the flow from the tank when it should when there is not vacuum to keep it open BUT also the needle and seat are likely not cutting off the flow of fule into the float bowl as the float is not closing off the needle and seat assembly due to float or float setting problems and or a defective needle and seat.

I have a yamaha xt125 Spark plug is white and bike is not running very well

That sounds like the mixture is too weak. Check for carburation problems, jet blocked etc. Maybe just a fuel feed problem. Take the fuel feed pipe off the carborettor and with a container to catch any fluids, turn on the tap. Does it flow fast? If not clean the fuel filter.
