picking the brains of those with more knowledge than me (which I aint got alot here) -found that the bike leaked fuel while petcock was on Run- but when I turn it to reserve it still works well and isnt dripping anywhere-even when left overnight in that position? is there two tubes from the fuel tank?

No - only one fuel line from the petcock to the carbs. Probably the packing (seals) in the petcock are leaking slightly. Some on this site have replaced the stock unit with one made by Pingel.

two tubes one fuel line

There is only one fuel line and on the underside of the tank is a "vent" tube. When very full under hard braking sometime gas may escape through the vent tube. Check all connections. You did not mention where it is dripping. Have you worked on the carnal lately?
