Question about 1995 Suzuki GS 500 E
Sounds like you have a stuck float in the carb. or a piece of crud on the float valve, or a bad float valve. The tube is the overflow tube. Shut off the petcock on the fuel tank. Take the leaky carb off, (you can leave the throttle cable attached) flip it over and remove the float bowl on the bottom. There should be some phillips screws. The hex shaped plug in the middle is the jet access plug. You don't have to remove it. Once it's off, you will see the brass float. Spray the hinge and needle/seat area really well with carb cleaner. LIGHTLY Lift up on the float and spray out the valve needle and seat right below the float really well in case there is a piece of debris causing it not to seat fully. You'll see the valve, it has a clip that attaches it to a little tang on the float. Flip the carb back over to an upright position (before putting the bowl back on) and see if the float drops down. If so, LIGHTLY push up on it and see if it moves freely. If so, and you are sure you cleaned the valve and seat, put the bowl back on, reinstall the carb, turn on the fuel flow and see if the problem is resolved. Most of the time this will fix it. The only expense is a can of carb cleaner and about a half hour of your time if you've never done it.
