I would check the valve clearance settings as it sounds like a inlet valve is being held partially open when it revs.. Check also for broken valve spring

I have a 2004 polaris sportsman 90 atv that leaks fuel

it does sound like the float adjustment is off inside the carb. allowing fuel to overflow the bowl and seep out the carb. if you take the carbeurator off the bike and take it to the dealer they shouldn't charge you too much just to adjust it out for you.

1996 500 sportsman, wont go over 15 mph,

Check your air filter,it could be very dirty and need cleaning or replacement.. Check your drive belt, it might be very worn. Get a Haynes or Clymer shop manual for assistance on maintaining your machine.
