If the airbox is full of fuel, the float(s) are not shutting off the fuel.

You have a lot of work on your hands. 4 carbs on that bike, and if the floats are sticking, there is a very high probability that all 4 needs to be broken down, cleaned and possibly replace jets and seats. Then comes the fun part of reassembly and synchronizing them. Pretty much looking at a two day job. One to remove, disassemble and soak in solvent, and one to scrub, reassemble and synchronize.

Just to narrow that down a little.

It's likely to be between $300-400 for clean and sync.

The internet is your friend. Just get'em cleaned or learn how to do it.
It's not that hard.
Pull'em off tear'em down.
Clean every part, every jet, every passage and every orifice.

Put'em back together.
Put'em on the bike and take it to a shop to have them sync'd.

Sync'ing is a step that should not be overlooked. If they are sync'ed the bike will seem to run OK but, it will be down on power. Sometimes by a LOT.
