Have you checked the float level in the float chamber?
I guess you may have to reset the float pin adjustment, its allowing more gas to pass through thn required and thus the overflow!
Not bad too, when you are working on the float assembly take the opportunity to blow out the fuel line from petcock to the carburator via the seat for the float pin,any foreign particals there would stop the float pin to seal up and thus overflow.
Fit in an inline fuel filter , this will help keep out the dirt or whatever.
Hope this helps.

The overflow problem is a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times doesn’t free the float I would remove the offending carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. By the way, Check the float, it could be filled with gas instead of air. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an in-line fuel filter.
The lack of movement in the carb slide is either a bad cable or the the carb is a CV model. The slide on a CV carb will not move unless the motor is running. Start the motor. Does it speed up normally when you twist the grip? If so, then there is nothing to worry about.

change the needle and make sure its jetting right, check the floats if it is operational. '90 to '95 carbs are compatible, so if you are planning a replacement, you may use those

It doesn't take much to hang the float valve open. The smallest speck of dirt or debris will cause the float valve to not shut the flow of gasoline off. After sitting for that length of time, the carburetor needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned. Use an automotive carburetor cleaner (but do not put any plastic or rubber parts in the carb cleaning solution as they will be eaten up). While you've got the carb apart, inspect the float valve. Replace it if there's a groove worn into the tapered seat. Installing an in-line fuel filter may help, too.
