sounds like the float valve in the carb bowl is not sealing, this would allow fuel to continue to fill the bowl and then over flow... The float rises as the fuel flows into the bowl, and closes or restricts the fuel flow valve at (hopefully) an appropriate level, which ensures enough fuel to feed the main and pilot jet, and not too much, which would overflow and possibly bog the main jet as well... When the bike is running the fuel drawn by the carb to feed the engine will usually take enough fuel that the carb would not over flow if it had a stuck float or a bad seal on the float valve. Remove the carb, take off the bowl, remove the float from its hinged position and see if everything is moving freely and no fine debris has accumulated in the worky bits...
