    Make sure your drain screw is tight on the bottom of your bowl. Also it's probably a good idea to flip the fuel off from your tank when you're not riding.

    gas line. thank you for your help. if any one else has a idea iwood love to hear them.

    Do you have a fuel filter on the fuel line before the motor.

    Some of the factory fuel valves are known for dribbling out fuel even when turned off.
    Luck of the draw when they box up the kits.
    Also you may want to check/ adjust the float height in the carburetor. If it is set wrong from the factory (quite common actually) it will not turn off the fuel flow into the float bowl at an appropriate level and can easily flood the carburetor.
    Here's a link to a thread by AussieSteve that may be of great help to you:
