Try sealing with PermaChem (I think that what it's called). It's a thick, sticky, fuel resistant compound that some in a small 4 oz tube. It never really hardens. It's made for threads. If this won't work than try Seal-All It will harden & should seal a cracked fuel tank, temporary fix for a fuel hose leak, etc. It can be found at Walmart, Home Depot, etc.

The new bike leaks fuel in overflow hose only drive 10kM after bought

If the tank was completely filled with cool gas, and the bike was parked in the sunshine, the gas in the tank warming up may have expanded, pressurizing the gas tank. Gas caps are supposed to be vented to allow air to enter as the fuel is used, but they don't stop the tank from having pressure inside. Try removing the gas cap to see if the leaking stops.
I suggest that you call the dealer that you bought it from and confirm the problem..

You just have to figure out where it is leaking and repair it. Cut out the bad part and use compression fittings and new line. The supply line is 3/8 inch and the return is 5/16 inch.

I have a 2000 kawasaki ZR750 with a gas leak

the gas tap has a diaphram and plunger to turn off the fuel when the engine is stopped, this may be dirty, worn or the diaphram gone hard. If dirt has got into the carbs it must have gone through the gas tap.

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank

the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.
