Will it restart afterwards? Try with gas cap off(not riding). Vent lines clear on carb? Petcock flowing?

It will restart after 30 seconds with choke on but it will only do it if you are riding it

Before we get too far, has the carb been cleaned recently? When did it start this? Anything else done to the bike before this started?

Mog is giving some good items to check.

Here are some more;

Check to be sure gas is following unrestricted from gas line from petcock.

As Mog states, clean carb and check float level.

How long as the bike been sitting/used?

You might want to make sure the exhaust is not plugged up.

It is rare that a carb needs replacing. I would start checking other items to be sure it is not something else. What could it hurt, since you are not having any luck with the carb.

If you get someone else to there to help you, many time a fresh set of eyes spots something that was missed.

Oh more to the story.

So the carb is leaking gas? The needle and seat could be worn or worn out.

If the float is set and it's leaking gas around the top of the float bowl, it's very likely the needle and seat are worn out like wingman said. The carb is probably fixable as long as you can get parts. You might want to take the carb to a shop and have it cleaned. They can dip it in solvent and clean it more thouroughly than just using carb spray and compressed air.

Do a search for "worn needle and seat" on you tube and you may see something that helps.

Here are couple that I found that may help.
