help. oil in airfilter box

i have a 85 suzuki gs500e. it wouldnt start the other day and i noticed gas in airfilter box. figured stuck float. i removed plugs turned it over and gas shot out the plug holes. i tapped on carbs to try to free floats. started it up and the airfilter box filled with oil through the tube comeing from the valve cover. what would cause this? do i need to clean the carbs? any advice would be appreciated.
