Need help

I have a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250 I had a carburetor I had it put on and now when I started and I get on the throttle and let off it throws gas into where the air filter goes I clean the jets and everything and put it back but it’s still doing the same thing and I don’t know what to do I’ve been trying to find somebody that can help me with this because I’m not very knowledgeable on the mechanics of a motorcycle so any help will help

That's very strange. I worked alot on carburetors from chainsaws, to motorcycles, to cars. My '94 ZX6E is carbureted. You are saying fuel is getting into the air box? Maybe the float system is not functioning allowing the bowl to overfill and run into the air box?

Check your oil level and if high fuel or smells like bass it may have flooded cylinder as said above which means it could have also leaked down into your oil. Two lines of defense against this, float bowl as mentioned and fuel cutoff valve when leave sitting.

I owned the exact same bike years ago. Worked on many a carburetor but vowed never to own another bike that wasn't fuel injected. That being said, I'm retired, have time, and willing to take a look at it if you like. Need to know if you have the tools to remove it and any kind and lucky - here's a link to an online PDF of a service manual.
