You need to take the carb apart and give it a good cleaning. Then change out the needle and seat and it will stop.

I had the same thing on my cat 400 FIS Auto, turned out one of the tiny fuel line clamps on top of the carb was barely hanging on.... the drip off the lowest point of the carb was because of that So check the fuel line clips, $0.49 fix.
