It's not a big deal, even though it may require removing the carbs to fix. Either a float is sticking, or a needle valve is not sealing. When I first bought my '93, the rear carb was flooding out. Though it was still under warranty, I didn't take it to the dealer, because I hate dealers, and don't trust them period. I pulled the carbs, and sure enough, there was a small piece (like flashing) from the manufacturing process sticking out on the rear float. I sanded it down, put it back, checked the float levels in both carbs, put the carbs back, and proceeded to rack up over 80,000 trouble free miles on it (except for the EIGHT times I had to do the rear spline lube). IMO, this is ridiculous, but it didn't keep me from buying a brand new '02 Vulcan 750. Jerry.
