Penguins' right;
The crank breather tube goes to the carb, if it layed on its side for a while, some oil could have gotten high in the tube, then when you stood it up it may have run into the carb.

Remove the breather from the side of the carb, and plug the hole on the carb with a rubber vacuum plug. Route the breather line either into the top of the airbox, or down to where the carb overflow hoses go. Your bike will have better throttle response too.
