Question about 1996 Suzuki VS 1400 Intruder
Bike has sat for about 8 months. Gas turned bad. Initial problem 8 months ago - gas pouring out the back of the engine compartment, rear cylinder cold.
Thought I had an electrical problem at first. Electrical checks in Clymer's manual led me to believe I had a bad pickup coil but manual was incorrect. Electrical system is fine.
Was told that float could be sticking. I am surprised that this type of thing can happen all of a suddent while riding.
Plan on checking fuel filters then pulling carbs and checking floats and performing cleaning (if my mechanical abilities allow me). I have never attempted this type of work before.
Any tips will be helpful.

This is an article I found on gas. I have had this happen to me and if the gas goes bad in lawn mowers I'm sure the same thing will happen in cars just not as common due to cars usually don't sit around.
I would try putting a gas stabilizer in and run that tank of gas till almost empty then fill it and see if the problem is still there.
Also take a look under the hood and look at the wires and vacuum hoses animals seems to like chewing on them some times.
If none of this works repost but let us know if the battery was dead at any time and if the check engine come on while the engine is running.
