Hi, Neil and the usual suspects are:

2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
Good luck and have nice a day.

Going to assume your not FI, so with that being said, smell your oil, if it has a smell of gas then your carbs have flooded and you have gas in your oil. Do not run the bike, change the oil & filter and fix the float's or it will happen again ... ethanol is our worst enemy!

Gas pouring out of overflow tube, gas in crank case


Definitely a carb. clean problem. Gas is more than 6 months old & has float needle stuck. Clean carbs. & always replace the float needle valve assy\'s & bowl gaskets. There is nothing you can put in the gas tank to clean carb correctly.

I have a 1988 750 Virago I just rebuilt my carbs so I decided to change the oil also and I found that there was gas in the oil. What could cause this.


hiya

when you rebuilt the carbs did you adjust the floats or needles because it sounds like you are flooding and the gas is leaking out

hope this helps

Petrol leeking from the overflow pipe under the carb.


Usually when fuel is leaking from the over flow tube on the bottom of the carb this means that the float is sticking. Or the float is set to high and needs to be re adjusted. If you are going to take on this job get a service manual.
