Assuming the carbs were rebuilt properly, this sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb and look at the float chamber fo any problems such as stuck float, float level not set correctly, and the correct installation of the main jet.
Use an air hose to dry out the cylinder then install a new spark plug AFTER you make sure that the cylinder is getting spark. Be sure to balance and sync the carbs when finished.

Let me get ths straight, there is petrol leaking out of your bike, more or less between your legs and you are still riding it??? STOP, if you have no concern for yourself, consider othrs around you. Dont ride this motorcycle until you find and repair the problem. I would suspect a vent or fuel line but it could be the carb over flow or a hole in the tank. Please get it fixed before you ride again.
