It sounds like the float is stuck and not shutting the supply off. Take the carb back off remove the bowl and check the float isn't jammed.

Have you put the floats back in upside down? I don't think you can but it's something to check

If your fuel needle isnt stuck open with dirt, you probably have the floats upside down. Flat side of the float goes to the bottom of the bowl.

You can always take a look at the parts diagrams at Gas Gas.com or Gas Gas's (.es) spain (AKA manufacture's website, might tell you what your doing wrong. Which carb do you have? Kehin's are tricky to take apart, and assemble, if you force it on the Kehin, you can bend stuff.
