If the floats are stuck, the only way to clear this is to get into the carb and clean it up. You can try to swish the fuel around by shaking the bike, but more than likely they need to come off and have a thourough cleaning. Thats the bad part of gasoline, it gums everything up once it gets old and it sets too long. You can tap lightly with a plastic hammer or screw driver but too much force will crack the casing, this might get them free enough to use some fuel cleaner in the gas to clean them up.

2000 Goldwing 25th anniversary 1500cc. Why no spark after sitting for 5 years?

Assuming that you have replaced the battery with a new one, does the engine turn over at all? If not, there is a fusible link in a holder next to the battery under the right side cover. Make sure that it is intact, it might be broken or fully oxidized from sitting. They check the coils and see if you are getting power. Make sure that all of the fuses and relays under the left side cover are good and the relays are seated completely.

Could still have a carb problem. Have you changed the fuel filter? That is always the first thing to do. Running on could also indicate a timing problem. How about the timing belts? have the been looked at lately? They may be stretch a bit or loose. Should not have to use premium in a Goldwing.

Sounds like fuel vaporization check the heat of the fuel pump it can be warm but not hot the fuel from the tank which is cold should be cooling the pump, check for air leaks or loose connections on inlet side of the pump if there is a leak on the pressure or outlet side of the pump it will be obvious. then check fuel the pump relay by swapping it with another relay.

Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.

Chevy burb 2005 fuel pressure drops in rail after vehicle sits for awhile... where is the Presurre Regulator?

The pressure regulator is located on the left side; driver side common rail -- however, that is most likely not your problem. You either have a bad check valve in the fuel pump inside the fuel tank or you have a fuel injector staying open...and leaking fuel pressure. The regulator only works when the vehicle is running.
