Left back side of carb, between first 2 carbs, there is a "J" shape tube connected to carb. Just pouring gas out the end of it while bike running.

Is it a float overfill drain? Stuck float?

Tried taking air intake off, took gas feed line to carb off, and sprayed a ton of carb cleaner, whole big can. THEN took syringes full of Sea foam and flushed that through.

Ran like a champ 10 miles, no fuel spilling, parked for a week, just started up again and its puring fuel out that J tube like crazy again.

Frustrated. 2 years working on this bike, only want something to rider 4 or 5 miles here and there, and can't seem to get this thing up to that level.

probably a bad float needle and seat. Or bad float.
