Virago 250 leaking gas from intake?

Hi there,

I have a Virago 250 and I am having a problem of gas leaking from intake filter box.

The fuel line that goes from carb to air filter box dumps too much gas into the air box and fuel just leaks out from an open port at the bottom of the air box. I am not sure why and how to remedy this issue and would be very appreciative of any incite on this matter.

well, can't believe that this sat this long and no one offered up and help. that's the carb vent line. only air is supposed to be going through there, you need to look into your float valve, either the floats stuck, or the needle valve is worn out
