Question about 1985 Honda CBX
Seems to be coming from float bowl
Filter will have no effect on leak.
Make sure that when the motor is shut off no fuel comes out of the tank by disconnecting the fuel hose. You may have a crossover hose dont confuse that with the carb fuel line.
Nope, take a screwdriver and hammer on the bottom half of the float bowls from the side with the plastic part of the screwdriver. If that doesn't work pull the carbs and remove the 16 float bowl screws with the carbs upside down. To remove the screws take a #2 phillips screwdriver and hammer and tap each screw with the screwdriver in place with the hammer. When turning the screws to remove them press firmly down to avoid stripping the screw head.

The shut off valves for the float bowl are probably stuck-or not seating properly --remove the carbueretors and remove the float bowls ( the bottom covers ) - the valves are over the floats, near the pivot point -remove the pins that hold the floats - and remove the floats - the valves may be attached to the floats with a small klip --inspect and clean the valve and the valve seat

Turn the adjusting screw all the way in until it LIGHTLY seats. Now back it out one and one half turns. Do the same adjustment for the throttle screw on the right side of the carb. You are now back to the stock factory settings.
Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: Upon starting, left float bowl
the float level is set with the carb on the bench float should be level with carb body above needle and seat you may nave abad float remove and shake to see if it has gas in it i would also recomend changing the needle and seat due to the age of bike

I PRESUME YOU THOROUGLY CLEANED THE FLOAT NEEDLE SEAT?AND INSPECTED THE NEEDLES FOR LIKENESS COMPARED TO THE OLD ONES, SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO IGNORE THE FACTORY SETTINGS PLACE THE CARBS ON THE BENCH WITH A FUEL SUPPLY CONNECTED AND ADDJUST EACH FLOAT UNTILL THE LEVEL OF FUEL IS BELOW THE OVERFLOW TUBE ALLOWING ENOUGH ROOM FOR THE FLOATS SO THAT THE LEVEL STILL LYES BELOW THE TUBE WHEN FULLY ASSEMBLED, COMPLETE THIS TEST BEFORE FIXING THEM TO THE BIKE, WHEN YOU ARE HAPPY REPLACE THEM BACK ON THE BIKE,
PS IS THE NEEDLE SEAT AVAILIBLE SEPERATLY MAYBE WORTH INVESTING INSOME NEW 1S IF THEY DO
YOU COULD HAVE THE CARBS ULTRASONICALY CLEANED
