If either of those scenarios are the case, you need to drain the oil and fill it with new before you run the motor any more. Leaky carbs almost always manage to dump fuel into your head.
I've already drained the oil and replaced it. I probably just forgot to mention i did so, but thanks for the input

mmiltonp was correct about the crack, i used some sealant to fix it and tried running gas through it and it did not leak from the bowls or the sides. i put the bike mostly back together to run it and it does not seem to be leaking into the air box or oil anymore, still needs a test drive though.

i am not sure how a crack would make the carbs overflow to make it come out the sides though. if its leaking then the needle would never close but the extra gas coming in would just leak out.

i will update within the next couple of days if the problem is actually fixed or not.

so i rode around on it for two days and it started leaking again, i was mad until i found out this time it was only leaking because i accidentally squished the fuel filter under my gas tank and it broke. but other than having to replace that everything is working great again. thank you all for your inputs.
