Don't know if my answer went through, gonna try it again. Your float is probably stuck. The the float bowl on the bottom of the carb a good tap with a screwdriver handle, often this will free it up. If not the carb will have to come off, open up the bowl, check the float to see if it's waterlogged by floating it in a cup of gas. If it's good replace your needle and seat and clean it up inside. Best $$ you'll ever spend is service manual from say, amazon for example. It'll walk you right through and save soooooo much frustration in all your work.

Slightly grey area as mixture, air screw is normaly addjusted when the machine is hot and is screwed either in or out whichever makes it run the best, however a base setting is 2 to 2 1/2 turns out, from all the way in. That would be 5 half turns

I have a 1982 kz ltd. after it starts and runs it leaks gas out of the bottom of #1 carb


You are probably dealing with rust in the tank. Clean your tank, check your fuel petcock to make sure the filter , on the intake , is still there, maybe add an extra inline filter just in case. Other possibilities, the float needle is worn out or the float is saturated with fuel and is sinking in gas. Take apart ,clean, and inspect the carburetor parts. See if the float sinks or floats in gas. Inspect the needle for wear on the sides and the rubber tip.
