    Hey all,

    Just got my bike a few weeks ago. Finally got around to completing it the other day. Loving every minute of it. Had a few chain problems, but (hopefully) got that fixed. Also couldn't get it to idle, also got that figured out.

    My question is about the fuel overflow line. I've read plenty threads about fuel leaking in general, but all of them say the engine had trouble running. My engine runs (what I think is) fine. But whenever i come to a stop and idle, or turn off the engine when I'm done, i end up getting a puddle of fuel that comes out of the overflow. I've heard that's normal, but how much is normal? While sitting at a stop sign a few hours ago, i looked down and saw a decent sized puddle forming under me. It's not pouring out, but just death by a thousand drips. Any suggestions? I'm not very savvy.

    Thanks in advance!
