very common.. usually caused by a dirty carburetor. Chances are the float needle is not shutting off fuel flow into the float bowl.

Fuel eventually overflows and exits the carb at one point or another. In the meantime the bike's power suffers since a steady, regulated fuel level in the float bowl is required for best performance.

the fix is not related to a leaking petcock.
