Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
When the carburetors over flow enough to fill the exhaust, It is possible that the gas also went into the cylinder and flowed past the rings and into the crankcase. With the engine overly full of gas and oil you could easily pop a seal or blow out a gasket. Check your oil level. If it is too full , change the oil, it will not lubricate properly with all the gas in it. Check that your shaft seal has not popped out. Check the air filter, the breather may have blown oil and gas all over it when you started the bike. Empty your pollution tubes behind the motor( they will drain the air box). Get in the habit of turning your fuel petcock off when not riding. This gas flooding happens randomly in certain models but can happen to any one.
