Look into fuel flow issues, there is a strainer in the tank, and usually a filter. This description sounds like a restricted screen and or filter.

The oil may not be a real issue, as closed crankcase ventalation system moves some oil to that area, to be burned by intake into combustion chamber. Excessive oil will happen when your engine is near the end of it's life and crankcase blow by becomes extreme.

Bike won't start

Do any lights come on when you turn the key? Do you need to pull in the clutch leaver to start? Make sure engine kill switch is in run position, Make sure you have petrol if more than 2 months old change it. Check main and ignition fuses are OK in fact check all fuses while your at it. Make sure your battery is OK your charger may say full but that does not mean the battery has enough oomph to start the bike.
How long ago since it last ran OK does anything come to mind when you stopped it then. Times of no run = times of problems.

The is spluttering there is no adjustment on the carb. The spark plug and air filter are ok. Just before it runs out of petrol it starts to run normally

The carb is flooding, as it runs out of fuel it leans of and runs normally, get the carb pressure tested, or just replace the inlet needle under the metering diaphram, and try again.

Fail to start

I think I would change the petrol in the tank as it may have become a bit stale. Also I would replace the battery.Make certain the replacement battery in fully charged before you try again.

Bike wont run for more than 5 secs and thats when it does start

Not sure but it sounds like it's running too rich a mixture and/or your float levels are not adjusted properly. When you stopped the excess fuel has gone into the bore not burned which will wet your spark plug making it very difficult to start. Depending on the colour of the smoke it could also indicate that your mixture is too rich. For extra power you need more air not necessarily more fuel. I hope that helps you. Again not sure but sounds like that is your problem. :)

X type converted to LPG. It runs OK on LPG but not petrol

areas to check are the fuel pressures, fuel hoses, fuel crossover solenoid
It indicates that the ECM is receiving the correct information from the sensors to adjust for LPG but when crossed over to petrol signals from sensors are not as clear as they should be
This can be from a power drain to components caused by a faulty solenoid or relay that is reducing the voltage available to the sensors ( normally in the air intake system or the heated oxygen sensor in the exhaust manifold )
check all harness connections and wiring
if you are checking it all your self then a workshop manual that has all of the voltages for each sensor would provide help
