Probably float level or float needle valve. Go to www.carbparts.com or do a google search for "mikuni float level". Could also be a problem with your tranny side crank seal or a weak ignition, but I am going to bet on the float problem first.

I would guess the same thing. Sounds like a float issue. Try shutting the gas off and running the bowl empty when you are ready to shut it off, then when you are ready to start it again, turn the gas on and see if it still has the problem.
