Strip and clean carbs, I had the same problem and that's how I fixed it. Take the carb to bits then soak all the bits in clean petrol (or prpsi believe it or not) for 1/2 an hour.

Well there only one way the fuel can get into the crankcase and that's from the fuel tank. The petcock must be draining and the float needles are not stopping the fuel flow. Do you have a prime position on the petcock? If so do not run the bike in the position. Try topping the tank off with gas and letting it sit for a while and see is the gas has gone down and then check the crankcase and see if there's fuel in it again. i still say its got to be your petcock.

Testimonial: "I will try it, thanks!"
ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors. Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains then remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and soak the entire carb in denatured alcohol for 30 minutes. Now clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the "blue" items on the carb and spray into the screw holes as well. Don't mess with #16 but if you must, be sure to count the number of turns and replace the same number of turns.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put all screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten #8 and #12 adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
Please rate this answer. Thanks!

Ride the bike 20 or so miles on open road. Stop and remove plug to inspect. 'Are they black or white ?
Black =rich white=lean
