Not sure what you mean by water leaking around the plugs. Exactly where do you see the water?

the water is around the outside of plug not inside the plug I've seen some post that mention a drain hole by the plug that may be stopped up, the bike has not been run in 3 or more years what I've done so far is replace plugs, fuel pump, and battery bike will start and idle for a while still need to have carbs cleaned and adjusted but in checking the engine I found the water at the plugs

found that there are drain holes there that were clogged and my son had washed the bike so I feel that that is where the water came from I feel so smart lol
