Leaky Carbs!

I left my bike in a buddies garage last night, When i got there today to bring it home i noticed it had leaked gas onto the motor and onto the ground. Seems to be coming from the carbs themselves. While driving it home it didnt idle for crap and actualy stalled at a red light once.

I took all the tins off to paint them and had just put it back together. But that shouldnt have affected the carbs in anyway

2006 Vulcan 750
Bone stock for now

future plans:
Ape Hangers
slim down all the lights
Smaller seat

Let me know if you have anything i might need

How much fuel are you talking about, a little, a lot ?

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

I'm having the same issue...the leak on mine is from the right air intake boot. Got the clamp tightened, but the stalling has become a real issue. I've fun Seafoam, adjusted the a/f pilot screws, fiddled with the choke and idle screw...nothing helps. The only way to keep her running is to keep the trottle open. This is driving me crazy because my bike is my main source of transport, and I don't have the cash to take it to a shop. Any input that might help would be amazing.
