Sounds like it could be overheating. Top up the coolant level.

the rectifier (alternator) may be overcharging the battery.

SOURCE: almost new battery has overheated and boiled over

Either you have a bad regulator/rectifier or you hooked up an accessory (fog lights,radio,etc.) directly to the battery. Drawing power directly from the battery and not drawing it from a power wire past the regulator/rectifier causes the charging system to go hay wire and boil the battery dry. Never draw power directly from your battery. Always hook accessories to a hot wire on the motorcycle past the regulator/rectifier.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Yahama Vstar 650. It starts up

If old gas sat in the carb.s for more than a month it starts to dry up. As it drys up it leaves behind a varnish like film that stops up some very small ports and pin holes inside a motorcycle carburetor. It is also very hard to get out. You can try this before you pull the carb.s for a full cleaning.Use a product called Seafoam, get as much gas out of the carb.s as you can. use a turkey baster and force the seafoam into your carb.s fuel line that you take loose from the fuel tank. Let that set for say 1 or 2 days. then hook up the fueltank with a mix of good gas and seafoam, (not a lot but enough to start it up. Move the cycle outside as the seafoam will make a lot of smoke if it does start up. If that does not clear up the problem you may have to pull the carb(s) and remove the blows to clean the inside. If you have to do that do not DO NOT MESS with any adjustment screws, DO NOT MESS with any adjustment screws. Just take the carb. bowl(s) off keep each one separate and number them so they do not get mixed up. do not mix up any internal parts. It is best to work on one at the time so nothing goes wrong. Work on a large sheet so if you drop a small part you can find it, you do not want to be missing some tiny spring or screw. Hope this Helps.

Why does the gas boil in the tank on my riding mower?

Is it boiling or just bubbling?
Some engines use the vacuum from the engine to pump fuel. Maybe you have an issue there. Is the machine running OK?

Engine oil draining away, no leaks, gurgling sound coming from gearbox breather..

Hello, you will find that the seal between the gearbox and motor is leaking, check your gearbox oil, it should be getting close to coming out of the gearbox breather (over full), do not ride, you will damage and burnout your gearbox.

How many mounht need to change oil

Usually you want to change oil about every 2-3000 miles depending on the type of bike and type of riding you do. If you only ride a few miles a season [under 2000], I would recommend changing it at the beginning of the season. If your bike is equiped with an oil filter always change it at the same time. - Les, happy riding.
