You need to fix the floats, get a new needle valve and set the float height and go from there.

first of all your runnin to cold of a plug it should be a br8es or R6918B-8, and with you running your clip all the way up on the needle witch would make the bike incredably lean but i do not know what jets you have in the bike. as far as your fuel leaking out your carb hose that would be your needle valve there is a spec on that gap, you have it wide open now and is just letting fuel in and then derectly out. That needs to be set properly.

that link did not tell me what jets you have i need to know the numbers on the jets themselves. its hard to tell without jet specs. what does your plug look like?? soaking wet and smell like fuel? white? sooty? and were is the bike running like crap low mid high or is it all over the throttle range? what oil mixture are you running, what octane of fuel?
