Well there only one way the fuel can get into the crankcase and that's from the fuel tank. The petcock must be draining and the float needles are not stopping the fuel flow. Do you have a prime position on the petcock? If so do not run the bike in the position. Try topping the tank off with gas and letting it sit for a while and see is the gas has gone down and then check the crankcase and see if there's fuel in it again. i still say its got to be your petcock.

Know that most shops will probably refuse to do repairs on your bike if it is more than 10 years old. Most all shops use this same standard. Parts availability is the main problem. In any event, below are things to look for if getting a used bike.

Does the engine start easy and idle smoothly? Does it accelerate without hesitation?
Any smoke when it starts or when pulling away from stop light? (Bad valve guides).
Any smoke when riding at 30mph? (Piston rings worn or possible previous seize up).
Does the clutch engage and disengage smoothly? Clutch lever easy to pull?
Any oil or coolant fluids leaking after a ride?
Do all gages work? Lights, horn and flashers?
Any red lights on the gages lit up? Any computer codes flashing?
Do front and back brakes operate and stop smoothly?
Is the motor oil pretty clean or really dirty? (Sign of how well the owner has cared for the bike).

Is the oil "white-ish"? (water in the oil. If motor is water cooled it's usually bad water pump seals).
Any funny sounds from the gear box? Anywhere else?
Does it shift smoothly up and down the full gear range? Neutral light come on properly?
Sprockets still have rounded tips not pointed? Well lubricated chain?

Good tires? How old is the battery? All lights work properly?
Is the upholstery good? Plastics cracked or broken?
Gas tank badly rusted inside? Do the wheels run true or weave?

Do the forks look bent from a side view or front view?
Does it drive nice or is the bike squirrely to drive? How about around curves and corners?
Ever been wrecked? What service work has been done in the past?
With the handlebars driving straight ahead, is the front wheel pointing a slightly different direction?
Do all accessories work properly?
Ask what doesn't work on the bike. What known problems do exist?

These are things to look for. I hope this helps.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

remove the top of the carburator, compress the spring on the jet, you will see the end of the throttle cable, unhook it from the holder, unthread the top of the cable from the carburator, pull the cable out. Now it is disconnected from the carburator, now disconnect from the throttle handle by removing the the two screws on the handle, unscrew the adjustment, then detach the cable. Replace in repeat order.

See if it is coming from the rocker cover above it. If not, it is oil off the cylinder bore that is seeping out instead of being burned. Replace the exhaust gasket.

Ideal spark plug gap varies slightly depending on brand - check the online application catalogue for the brand of plug fitted to your bike and the recommended gap will be found in the relevant entry.
