    Default More with the flat tops

    I finally got the Z running without stalling!!! Now comes the bad news... The back carb is leaking out of some tube pointed towards the air cleaner. WTF could cause this?

    I don't know much about flat-tops, but I'm wondering if the float level is too high, or the float is stuck, sending fuel out of the float bowl vent hose? (Do flat-tops even have float bowl vents?)

    Check the window on the side to see if the fuel level is correct. There is a line on the window showing correct height. If it's over then your most likely overflowing. They do breathe a bit, but it seems yours is breathing to much!
