Question about Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom Motorcycles
Easy solution is turning the supply valve off at the tank when you shut off the engine. It is likely that your float valve is not shutting off the flow of gas in the carb. You can drop the float bowl and see if it is full of stuff. Carefully rinse it out and then use some carb spray to chase the ports. Very gently spray/clean the float valve. Probably a bit of stuff stuck to the rubbery part there. If that does not do it, you may have to replace all that stuff (rebuild).
hope this helps
