Bike started running poorly and had trouble keeping it running. Noticed it was purging out of all four carb overflows when running and totally upright. It more or less fixed itself when I got to the road and ran it full throttle for a few minutes.

I haven't cleaned the carb yet thinking the float got stuck. Any other ideas on what to look when I'm cleaning it out?

Dirt in the fuel tank.
