Bought my son a used quad in great shape today its a 2000 yamaha warrior 350 off a friend who hasn't used it in 7 years . installed new battery today and took carb off cleaned it and put back on started right up ran fine until I shut it off it leaked a half a tank of fuel on my garage floor and my house stinks now . Lol..... it leaked out lower over flow hose that come out of the reservoir where the floats are . Wondering if the floats are stuck open ??? Should I rebuild The carb or is it something stupid ? There has to be someone on here with some experience ????

Something is stuck under the needle, been setting that long you should replace the needle and seat in the carb bowl.

Not too sure about Yamaha rebuild kits, it is probably a couple of o rings, gaskets, and the needle and seat, so probably, I've never seen a rebuild kit without the needle/seat, but make sure before you order.

Temporary fix is to tap the bowl with a screwdriver. I would rebuild it after something sat for 7 years. The gaskets are probably really dry too.
