Un-metered fuel dumped into the intake can't help performance.
Youre Over expecting the volume

Huh? Overestimating?

It's just not normal to have fuel flowing through the vacuum line.

It's happened on my own bike, so no need to estimate anything, it filled the crankcase with gas while parked with the petcock turned off.

Almost every major leak starts with a trickle.

Well thanks for all the advice but i cannot figure out the problem with the bike. So i will put tank back on and spray staring fluid around the carb see if i can find vacuum leak if not im going to give up on the old bike. Its to bad its a clean bike with only 5500mi. on it. Again thanks guess i will put it in the corner of the shop and cover it up.
