Fuel: I'm told (thanks fearlessfred) that the diaphram in the petcock can go bad/crack/pieces broke off and that allows fuel to go down the vac hose and into the motor.
Ah ha!! So this is why it will flood the case!!

I have been trying to sort out why you say a bad petcock will flood an engine when all carbs have floats that shut off the fuel supply, so a faulty float will flood an engine regardless of petcock or not. Or am I missing something else?

Is there fuel dripping out the hoses when disconnected?
Running ethanol fuel?
I'm sure you've read to clean the needle and seat. Some have adjusted the float level if they have a float with the metal tab. It worked for some.
Got a inline shut off?

Default Carb issues

Hey i have a 95 LT80 and it sat for a while i cleaned the carb and got it to run. I had to baby the throttle. After a while it would die out. Soo as i was cleaning the carb i noticed the float had some fluid in it idk if thats supose to be there i did not buy a new spark plug yet. But i did order a whole new carb for the bike and i also noticed the fuel line on the petcock is full is that getting to much gas should the fuel line have a bubble in it

Welcome to the forums.
The float was no good. Good call on the new carb.
The line is supposed to be full.
I do add a inline on/off valve close as possible to the carb. With the ethanol fuel, it's been helpful to shut the fuel off and run the carb dry when done riding.
