Question about Motorcycles
Start the engine and urn the fuel off...
let run until the fuel is consumed that remains in the carb.
this will lower the float to its lowest possition and allow any crusties to dislodge from the float valve so it can reseat itself.
if the leak is from hardened gaskets , then you will need to address that with a carb kit.
good luck !

SOURCE: Fuel leaking from bowls on Carb
is the leak coming from the overflow or just the seal around the bowls? if you take the bowls off (turn petrol off first) the floats may be getting caught open?

Turn the adjusting screw all the way in until it LIGHTLY seats. Now back it out one and one half turns. Do the same adjustment for the throttle screw on the right side of the carb. You are now back to the stock factory settings.
Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: carburators leaking
Tap the bowls with a screw driver handle while the gas is turned on. Your floats are sticking. If that doesnt work then you have to take the bowl off and make sure your floats are not bent.

like said above, floats were stuck, give the carb a good cleanin, make sure the float rises up and down but stops were its level and doesnt go any higher or the bike could run like ****, take out all the jets and make sure you can see right through the top of the carb, also make sure not to over tighten them when putting them back in and if there is any dirt or anything in there stick a peice of copper wire or something along those lines and clean in out, clean and good operating carb is key lol
