It's doing this while sitting? If so, I'd check/recheck the float bowl vent hose and tank vent hose for obstructions. They can run fine, you stop, heat soak sets in, the fuel vapors have no where to go, so they push fuel out into the venturi, where it runs down into the cylinders... just sitting in the sun can also do this. As well as the tank vent being blocked

Edit: also had them do it while running, might pull up to a stop, it dies and you smell gas as it's flooded.

I'm having trouble believing they don't have a vent other than the cap. If it's vented. It has been superceded

CAP, FUEL FILLER

17620-KR3-013 replaced by 17620-KR3-023

fits models all the way back to 1985 look under the right rear edge of the tank for a vent hose?

might try modifying the cap, here's a bit on doing the same to a Kawasaki cap:

Whistle Stop could be close to the same setup.
