Ok so about a month ago i had the carbs redone on my 83 1100 everything seemed fine. started the bike today and i got alot of smoke and noticed my fuel level went from just under full to the reserve line. after closer insection my carb on the right side was weeping gas all over the motor, this was on the bottom of the carb. I was just wondering what would cause this being that i just had a rebuild done.. AND YES I SHUT OFF MY FUEL WHEN I TURN OFF THE BIKE:) just sayin. any imput on this would be great thanks...

Can you tell I'm a moron that shouldn't work on anything?

I had that happen on my Vulcan once after sitting all winter in storage. I thought maybe the float was shot, but it turned out iwas just stuck. One of my mechs gave it a couple taps with a screwdriver handle and poof, no more drip. Not saying this is the case with you, but that's where I'd start.
