Question about Motorcycles
Probabilly a stuk carburettor float or needle.
Try to solve this problem to gently tap on the carburettor bodies. If this doesn't help you have to clean out the carburettors, and/or replace the float neeldes

Sounds like you have got worn piston rings/barrells the excess gap is alowing the fuel mixture in yhe bores to leak past down into the the oil- engine may need major overhaul as this will only get worse

32 to 1 gas and oil > Two Stroke Engine Oil ( not Motor oil ). This equals 4ounces oil per gallon of gas.
Use premium unleaded gas. No Ethanol gas.
10w40 motor oil for the gearbox. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

1st check the fuse(s) are OK.
Sounds like a dead battery, either old or not being recharged by system.
The voltage across it should be at least 12.2 volts switched off rising to 12.5 -15 volts with engine running
If battery OK then check connections & wiring from battery to ignition switch & back out into the loom
Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

It may be possible that when it ran out of fuel that it grabbed any **** that was in the bottom of the tank and put it into the carbs, which may have gunked them up and they might need to be cleaned.
To verify that it IS or is NOT fuel or Carb related, get some starting fluid and shoot it into the air filter box ( or along the pod filters if the original box has been removed) to see if it starts. If it DOES start, you have a fuel issue either with the carbs being gunked up (idle jet or main jets), or the floats could be stuck open (again with gunk from the bottom of the tank) and thus flooding out your motor (you said it smells like gas). Usually if it smells like gas and the plugs are wet, something is wrong with the ignition since its not burning it. So if all of the above is OK, check the timing under the points cover, you may have to set the gap (on most older bikes its around .30-.40mm) But since you rode it home I doubt thats it.
