Check your float height on the carbs. If it's not set correctly it will continue to flow fuel because it hasn't reached it's shut off point. Also I would check the jetting you may be running rich, but if the bike ran fine before it was parked I would say the float is you point of issue.As far as the oil frothing? that doesn't necessarily mean you have fuel in the oil. Air in the system will give you a similar look. If the bike has been sitting for a good period of time, it's common to have the frothing appear until the oil pushes all the air out of the system. If it's fuel, your oil level will be getting higher too, so check for that.

I have a Honda vf400f its been stood a while were I bought it from it wont start ive drained and put new petrol in ive cleaned carb and spark plugs .do I need new plugs they were black but I cleaned them...

Take out the plug, attach the lead on the electrode and crank the engine. If the sparks show, the plug is ok. If the plug is fouled have you cleaned the electrode where it sparks with emery paper or sandpaper? Try another plug, only hold against a metal earth with an insulated plier to prevent you getting a jump. Failing that put a metal Philips cross head screwdriver where the lead goes onto the plug, again insulate and see if a spark jumps from the lead to an earthed part, then you will know that the spark is there but the plug is faulty. In fuels mixed with oil( 2 stroke engines) plugs do fail without warning so you may as well keep one or more for emergencies.

Ducati 600 ss been stood still for 6 years, any tips for ensuring a good start?

Hi, Simon if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

If it doesn't fire right up do not keep trying you will burn up the starter Change something
1.Fuel on
2 kill switch to run
3 side stand up
4 petcock in prime position if it has one
5 Spark?
6 choke on?
7 check the spark plug to see if it smells like gas or is wet with fuel
20 seconds at a time on the starter or it will burn out

2002 cbr 1100 xx been sitting for 5 years just put new battery in & fresh gas now it is flooding fuel into crank case

Had the same problem with mine, been stood for 1 year. Put a new battery on it everything was fine passed the M.O.T. Waited until the end of the month to tax and it wouldn't start. Plenty of petrol in the tank, wouldn't crank over on the starter, but could hear the fuel pump kicking in. Looking for a fault and kept trying it, checked for loose wires and blown fuses to no avail. Then i noticed fuel light came on checking tank was empty. Wondering where the fuel had gone I found the engine had flooded into the crank. Stripped everything down found the problem was neutral switch was broke. Check this hope it helps you, mine in the 1999 fuel injected model. Cheers Kev :o)

Jimmys of this year had a bad problem with the fuel spider on vortec fuel injector hoses underneath the plenum. check your oil level to make sure that fuel isnt draining into oil sump and over filling it. this condition is very dangerous. 1 it can blow the top out of a piston or 2 catch on fire. that is where I would look first.
