Possible Carb Problems

I am having trouble with my bike when i turn the petcock to the on position the bike gets flouded but if i have it on off the bike runs great till i run out of fuel so I have just been turning it while i ride just to keep gas in it. What could be the problem the float stuck or the petcock bad.

The bike is a 1989 vulcan 750 it has 5500 miles i live in pa and just had the bike in the garage for carb work. I try to ride the bike often but is a pain right now witht his problem. Any help.

Probably a stuck float. Might have to take out the carbs and clean them. Though you might get away with either using seafoam or spraying carb cleaner up the drain hole on the carbs.

1985 VN700 unknown mileage (over 33K)

AGM Battery
Iridium spark plugs
NGK wires and caps
Relocated R/R

^^^X2 Clean those carbs. pay special attention to the float needles and orifices for foreign debris.
