Question about Motorcycles
Air box was half full with gasoline one of the vacumn hoses broke off and was leaking fuel pretty bad
DO NOT TRY TO START YET!
Remove the plugs and spin the engine. Could be a hydrolic lock and bend the piston rods.

The overflow tube coming out behind the swingarm? If that is where it is coming from sounds like your float in one of the carbs could be stuck.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Almost always, your described problem would be the float needle not closing the inlet seat. This could be caused by a dirt, sand, contaminant, worn needle ends, grooves on the seat. Unfortunately, the only fix would be to pull down the carbs again and redo. Considerations are:
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

weak wires are sometimes the cause of loss of power,if they have been really hot from trying to start and become higher in resistance. looking at the ends of wires where connection are sometimes can reveal bluing of the copper inside (signs of heat). loose cable ends look good but dont perform well.Test charging system for proper charge output to voltage reg. and battery.Short tolerance to load under start conditions could be due to not being charged at high enough volts from charging system. (too many chicken lites or other stuff drawing current)

hi,sounds to me like the air fuel ratio is all up the ***,locate the air/fuel screw on the carb(normally on the side)screw the screw right in untill it stops,then back the screw out 1.5 turns,this should get the bike to run without the choke,once you have the bike running simply turn the screw in or out untill the bike settles into a nice steady idle,should be good to go,hope this helps...cheers
