These bikes have a bunch of vacuum lines on the bottom of the carb and they can get heated, brittle, crack, and start leaking. An easy test is to use some brake cleaner in this area. If you have a leak, your motor will change RPM. It may lead you to which (if not all) lines need to be replaced. Easy test - not as easy to fix (pulling the carb rack). I've pulled mine enough that I'd suggest that if you do pull it, order a carb rebuild kit from Randakk's Cycle Shop and rebuild the internals of the carb. Then you can set the float like Kevin (Tatanka) mentioned.
The Sea Foam treatment is a great move. That will start you in cleaning out the fuel system and motor internals.
Keep us posted.
