Carb float valves        

The fuel siphons from the tank into the intake and cylinder before filling the crankcase.

That typically happens when the float valves in the carb fail to seat, but also requires the vacuum petcock to malfunction at the same time, unless someone set it on "Prime".

Most likely the carbs need to come off and be gone through. Note that on your model, the parts are not interchangeable side-to-side like previous gens. The petcock may need attention as well.

If you want professional carb work (don't go to a dealer!), www.customcarbservices.com is who you want to talk to. Reasonably priced, and they will look and function like new.
