After Gak Issues, Need Advice

Hi Hope someone can help me out, i was doing the gak to this bike im on and installed the air and oil filters and ,new holders, new 125 jets and put on #4 shim on each needle. Now the bike will start and run for a few seconds but then stops, im also seeing gas drip out of the bowls , not sure what i did wrong but figured someone here would know a bit more than me. Thanks in advance for your help

Garage
is the gas dripping out of the float bowls themselves (bad oring/gasket) or coming out the over flow tube?

If its coming out the overflow tube your floats are either stuck open, or mis-adjusted.

Check your oil and make sure it does not smell like gas. If it does, dont run the engine till you fix the problem and change your oil.
