I met the ground and trees a few times today at a D23 harescrambles in Dresser, WI and had a heck of a time restarting my 01 yz426. After about 15 kicks I looked down and saw gas literally RUNNING out of the overflow tube. Do I have a problem? Any idea what it is?

If it is still doing it, it is a stuck float. Tap the float bowl lightly with the handle of a screwdriver or just take the bowl off and see what happened.
