Question about Motorcycles
Hi Michael the problem with many older motorcycles is usually gas working its way from the fuel tank and dirty or worn carbs into the engine check your oil level and to see if it is overfull and smell it for fuel. Change the oil and refill to the proper level then you need to check your fuel system.
1. check to see if your fuel petcock is not flowing and the setting is on on or reserve. If it is still flowing then the vacuum diaphram needs replacing.
Position PRI is for when you run out of fuel and needed to prime refill the carbs to get the bike running then turn to reserve. hope i Explaned it clearly enough hope this helps.

make sure that you dont have to much oil in the motor if it has a dipstick make sure not to screw it in when you check it just set in the hole the tubes are blow off or overfills

check the oil level again. trace the tube to see what it really is. make sure it isnt coming from the oil filter. had 1 that was the wrong size and was like 2mm off in length. screwed down tight but had a persistent leak. good luck. if it is the oil overflow, I used a very clean shop towel and wicked out excess by dipping it in the filler hole.

The float is stuck open giving the carb fuel constantly. The extra fuel runs into the intake, fills the cylinder, gets past the piston rings and then fills the gearbox and overflows onto the floor. Pull the carb and clean it. Some trash, ( such as rust from the tank ), is not letting the float needle to seat. Also, turn off the gas at the tank when you are not riding. If you already are doing this, the petcock must not be shutting off properly and needs to be replaced. Right now, change the oil in the gearbox. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

You will likely need to remove, disassemble, and soak the carburetors in carb cleaner.
Although drained of fluids, there's almost always some left over gas and it turns to shellack over years, and will cause things like the float valves to stick.
You can try just spraying carb cleaner into the carbs and hoping it works, but dis-assembly will likely be necessary.

It sounds like the transmission is overfilled. Check the level of the lube by removing the plug from the chrome end cover on the right side of the bike. It usually takes a large hex key to remove the plug. With the bike standing straight up, the level should be between the two marks on the dipstick. The transmission holds between 20-24 ounces of oil.
