Likely in need of carburetor rebuilds. These Keihin side drafts are very pesky.

I suggest a competent repair shop handle it with Honda parts or you get a Honda (not generic) manual to handle it yourself.

I would take Joe F's advice.It sounds like it's dumping fuel which will cause a rich mixture.It may be time for a carb rebuild.
But as I am not there to look at it myself I would take it to a shop.It may be something simpler but without seeing it's hard to diagnose on the forum.
I am almost positive it's a bad needle and seat in the carb though.
