SOURCE: Fuel pump location
If the carbs are leaking fuel then the float pins inside are not sealing ad the weight of the fuel in the tank is pushing out. your bike should not have a pump. it should be gravity fed. if your bike sat for a long time and you did not drain the carbs before putting it in storage the fuel goes stale and creates a varnish like residue inside the carbs. unfortunately the only way to clean it is to disassemble and clean them. not something a casual rider should attempt. it is something that should be left to a mechanic. removing them from the bike could save you some money, but not much. taking the bike in to a bike shop is your best bet if you have never done carburator work before. the mech can clean, reassemble and sync. usuall cost around 300-350 parts and labor at a good shop. I used to run a motorcycle service department. if you can do it yourself great. just dont get in over your head. it is harder for someone to pick up where you left off working from a bag full of peices the to be the one who took it apart and remember where everything goes. good luck

These aren't too bad to do. You'll need to get the correct size spark plug socket, they hold the plug better for installation. I picked mine up at the kawasaki dealership, and the socket at sears. You can take the tank off to do this and it's much easier, but it's not necessary. If you take the tank off there are two screws that hold the gauge cluster onto the tank. remove that and lay the guages off to the side. you can use string to hang them so they don't hang by the wire. I cannot remember if it's two bolts holding the tank on, or it it just slides forward. I believe there is one bolt under the seat at the back edge of the tank. You will also have to disconnect the fuel lines. Put the tank switch in the off position and then you can pull the lines. It will spill some fuel, if it contines to drain you have the switch in the wrong spot. Then carefully pull the tank off.
Pop the spark plug wires off and screw the plugs out. When installing new ones always use some anti sieze. Put a dab on the threads and install the new plugs. Check the gap on the electrode to make sure it's not smashed down. Then hook up the plug wires and reassembe the rest of the bike.
