Why is Car orator is pouring gas out and is not running ?

I assume you found the contaminates collected in the bottom of the bell housing.
remove the housing again and make sure the float switch is seated properly. If it has stuck in the low position gas will continue to feed and overflow the carb.

Where is the battery located on a 2005 kawasaki concours 1000? and how would i go about charging the battery? or does it have to be taken to the shop? bike has been sitting in the garage for over 6 months,...

I don't know 100% for sure where the battery is but typically on Japanese bikes they're under the seat. You can charge it yourself using a motorcycle battery charger. Sears also sells a charger that's good for cars and motorcycles and will condition a battery that's sulfated. Changing the gas in the tank would be a good thing to do to help prevent the possibilities of fuel related problems rearing up when you show the bike. Other than that, a good going over before you put it on the market is a good idea.

I have a kawasaki 300 byou 1990 moled 4X4 that i put a carberator kit in but just doesn't run right spits and sputters when i give it gas it will idle ok sometimes. drained all gas and cleaned out good....

It sounds like it is running too rich (too much fuel). First, make sure the air filter is clean and that there are no intake leaks between the carburetor and the engine. Also, try a new spark plug (they can go bad without warning). Then, with the engine at normal operating temperature and idling, adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the highest idle speed. After this, set the idle to the correct speed using the idle speed adjustment screw.
Test ride. If it still spits and sputters at half to full throttle, then you will need to get a smaller main jet - or go to a less restrictive air filter, such as one by K&N.
Finally, I am not sure what prompted you to put a carburetor kit in, but if the bike had been sitting for any lenght of time (more than 6 months) make sure the carb isn't plugged up.

My 2000 Kawasaki concours gets 33 mpg from mostly freeway driving. I've heard Concours owners say they get over 40 mpg. What kind of mileage should I expect. I would like to hear from other Concours owners...

The Connie is a big heavy bike and your mileage is average. Are you using premium fuel? are your tires properly inflated? Are you doing 75 or 65 on the freeway ? All these factor into good mileage....and remember some of the other guys don't know how to equate proper mileage numbers and others love to fudge their numbers just to make you feel bad.......most inline 4 cylinder bikes return mileage in the 30s...Good luck to you and enjoy your bike, it is a fine machine.....tim
