Newbie check-in

Hi everyone, I'm new to this bike and bikes in general, I'm from Sevierville, TN. I just got outta the Marines, and I purchased a 95 Vulcan 750. I took off the carbs and and cleaned them because the guy I bought it off said it sat for a year, I also replaced the air filters with the K&N clamp on's. I got it to start but it's spitting gas out the over flow lines on the carb and won't idle. I hope it's ok to ask for help in a newbie post

If the carb is overflowing your needle valves are sticking, or just bad. Possible the floats are out of adjustment.
I'd first try draining the carbs, leaving the drain screws open, and spraying some carb cleaner down the two fuel lines. (Be sure to wear eye protection as the spray can backfire on you.)
If that doesn't work, you'll have to take the carbs off again and check them out.

BTW.... Welcome!
