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.

see for that the float needle is fitted well, search for that any unwanted dirt or dust particle are not stuck in the flow line of fuel in the carbeaurator check for all port's & fuel line are clear inside the carbeaurator see what might help you out see you soon.....

SOURCE: Fuel leak
The carb/s are flooding , you will have to check the float pin and the float, a good clean with compressed air should do the job, check too the fuel line and the fuel filter.
Hope this helps!

ok i have one and i just fixed mine you need to drain the fuel from bottom of carbs and drain the tank also. then replace the spark plugs once you do that add new fuel in tank and drain the carbs again unitil good fule start runing out then shut them off. aftre that make sure there are two line connected to the petcock from the carb. spray soem starting fluid in the air box and chock it boom it will start. if it has spark.
