Hey guys...have a blonde question here...so stick with me on this one please. Fuel overflow hose...how much should really be coming out of this? I currently have a pretty steady flow and makes a puddle real quick. Why is this going on? How can i fix it, should i be worried about it...etc. Thanks a lot.

Your float level may be mis-adjusted or stuck open by some grime. Constant fuel dripping out the overflow is a good sign of that.

Clean your rig off real well.

Pull the carb completely off the bike and clean the whole thing out thoroughly.

Buy a manual btw if your not sure how to put the little bugger back together.
