I guess you need a new ignition switch to cure your turning off problem, the pipe from air filter is probably the crankcase breather that vents pressure from engine in to air box, this will contain some oil mist

Small amount of gas in rear air filter compartment.Changed out old degraded foam air filters for new K&N Filters

The carbs spit back a little fuel normally and sometimes they'll flood over and stop flooding as the engine shakes but the air filter should dry off as the motor runs. or the gas is real old? Does the bike run OK?

It wont stay running in stalls out from time to time

Change the fuel filter,clean the carb jets again,and replace the air filter.This should take care of it but sometimes when they sit for awhile,you will need to clean the carbs numerous time as the gunk in the tank continues to wash down into the carbs.

I have white smoke coming out my pipies and the only way i can keep my bike running is to blow air into the vent tubes on the carbs, the other problem is that i have gas coming out my number one carb? how...

If you are positive the smoke is white then that usually means there is water... coolant... that is being cumbusted. This is not good at all it could hydrolock and throw a rod. Get it checked out professionally. Also make sure you have fresh gas and a fresh plug in it.
