Yes anytime in my experience gas coming out of the overflow means float is stuck, sometimes you can tap the carb with the handle of a screwdriver and get it to work, but usually it requires a carb rebuild

There should be a bike equivalent of an alternator providing power to the bike. Sounds like it died. In a car (where I am getting my idea from due to lack of bike experience), the battery starts the car, the combustion rotates the engine which turns the alternator which charges the battery and provides electricity to the vehicle.
My bike has fallen over many times in the driveway lol but always starts after. Was the bike stored for six months? The gas may be bad. I would drain the tank and try fresh fuel. Also check your fuel line. IT May be pinched off from the fall restricting fuel flow. Also check the fuel filter, may be clogged from old gas too.
Well there only one way the fuel can get into the crankcase and that's from the fuel tank. The petcock must be draining and the float needles are not stopping the fuel flow. Do you have a prime position on the petcock? If so do not run the bike in the position. Try topping the tank off with gas and letting it sit for a while and see is the gas has gone down and then check the crankcase and see if there's fuel in it again. i still say its got to be your petcock.
poor fuel, gummed up carbs. blocked fuel filter, if you in the US get some Berrymans B12 double the dose and put it in the gas, hopefully you can get it to turn and draw it through to the carbs, it should clean them out, also you can try the berrymans spray carb cleaner, remove air cleaner, make sure slider in carb is up and spray a bunch in.
did you have lights when it died or nothing at all?
I would check the fuel lines themselves and make sure there is no blockage. If not you might want to check your fuel injectors and see if they need to be replaced. also make sure you didnt install fuel filter backwards.
fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions.
