SOURCE: carb issues
Sorry to hear about your carb issues. Two possible issues that come to mind are (1) fuel level in the bowl most float assemblies are made of brass and have a small tab which applies pressure on the float needle. If this tab is not adjusted correctly the fuel will not shut off when the float reaches its maximum height. The tab can be bent to apply pressure at just the right moment. You can verify this by doing a bench test, with the bowl off. So much nicer to know before going through all the work of putting it back on the bike. (2) Check the buoyancy of the float itself many of the old-school foam ones dont have enough umph to close the needle all the way. If you have the brass style floats make sure you dont have a leak. ( submerge the float then check for air bubbles also shake the float and listen for gasoline within) Check with GDL Cycles they can help you with those hard to find parts for many old school Japanese bikes.

I had the same deal. After the rebuild kit, it still happened. Against the advice of my mechanic, I filed the top of the float ever so slightly, decreasing the chance for the top of the float to come into contact with the dome of the carb. 2 years later, no leaks. And always - always - turn off the fuel when not mobile ;>)

Remove the throttle stop adjuster and the air screw adjuster and spray carb cleaner in the holes.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Turn the pilot screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Check the float level. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Adjust the idle speed with the Throttle stop screw. This process should get you back on the road. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

The float is stuck open in the leaking carb. Remove the float bowl and clean the carb after removing the pin holding the float in place. While the float is out, shake it to see if gas has gotten inside it. If so, you will need a new float or will need to drain the float then re-solder it to seal it up again. To drain the float chances are you will need to drill a vent hole in it to allow the gas to drain. Just solder the vent closed when done.
