Carb float?

I have gas pouring out of my carb drain line after the bike is shut off. 03 KTM 450. Is this a easy fix. It stops of course when I turn fuel switch off. Thanks for any help.

Remove float bowl cover, remove float and needle, polish needle cavity and needle body, and re-install everything. Your float needle is getting stuck due to corrosion.

Thanks for your help

+1 Thanks. Have same problem on 2003 XR400 that won't start.
