Gotcha. Obviously it should not leak out of the overflow for no apparent reason.

Check your carburetor for plugged jets or incorrect float setting. If the jet(s) are plugged even a little it will not run right and gas would accumulate in the bowl while the engine is running and overflow. If the float is not properly set it would fill up and overflow while the bike is parked (if the petcock is on). Turn the petcock to off and empty the bowl. Then turn the petcock back on. If it does not overflow while parked then the float should be ok. Also a faulty petcock could cause a problem but that is rare.
