Those pet**** (gas valve) on those bikes (and most bikes with a pet****) is vacuum operated, meaning that the motor has to be running (and producing vacuum) for the valve to flow fuel. If your's is leaking when the bike is parked, shutting the valve off my solve your problem, but to make it "right" you need to either rebuild the pet**** (if it is serviceable) or replace it. I personally prefer a pet**** that is not vacuum operated, makes it easier to get fuel into the carb without having to crank the motor over a bunch of times. But then you have to remember to shut off the fuel when parked, and turn it back on before you roll out.
