Question about Motorcycles
Hello everyone! I felt down from my bike, and the next day i started the engine.. a huge quantity of gasoline runs out of the fuel tank... the engine started fine, but it leaks fuel.. does anyone know what could be? thanks!
More that likely when you fell the lines to the carb got damaged or partially disconnected and are leaking or the carbs(if it has carbs) has a stuck float which would allow fuel to over fill the bowl and pour out. The petcock is a vacuum controlled unit so that's why it does not put out any fuel until the engine is started (which is when it leaks). The tank may need to be lifted up some to see where the leak is coming from. If the lines are ruptured then replace them. If the carbs are leaking, tap on the bottom of the bowls with the back side of a wooden hammer (or something soft) and sometimes that will make them stop leaking.

SOURCE: wet clutch
I just recently experienced the same thing. I drained all the fluid out of the clutch master throught the slave cylinder and refilled it with new fluid. Bled the system really good and now it works just like new. If this does not help you may need to remove the slave cylinder and replace the seals if it is leaking.

Try putting in new, stock spark plugs. Check and possibly replace the air filter. Charge the battery. Get the bike running then check the battery voltage at 2000 rpm. It should show 14volts or more. If not, get the charging system checked. Get a can of starting spray (for future problems).
Get the compression checked. Your bike is 21 years old and I will bet that the valves are needing to be reseated. Check the valve clearances with a cold engine and reset valve clearances as needed. Check the area where the head contacts th cylinder. Any mist of an oil stain? Tighten the head or replace the head gasket. If replacing the gasket, now is the time to have the shop lap re-seat the valves. Have them sync and balance the carbs as well. Your bike will now have its' manners back and show you the dedication it should.
