1989 Gl 1500 carbs rebuilt new oem needle and seat valves . starts up with choke on as it warms up and i ease choke off and all the way off give it gas then let it idle fuel comes out of one of the 2 holes at the venturi on both carbs . turn choke on a little bit seems to keep it from happening but not by much . does not flood out when first started it takes a bit for it to happen . any insight much appretiated

Sounds like float level a bit too high, or leaking. Stock fuel pump?

Enough choke to increase the idle speed?
What is the fuel pressure?
Bike history?
