Not that much to the petcock, right?

Chicago-Spike Seafoam is good for cleasning up SMALL amounts of varnish, but not 4 years worth. You need to take the carb off and clean everything up like new.

THEN you can drain the engine case and change the oil. Ride it for a few miles(like 5 ) and then change the oil again

enduro Something is stuck in the carb as you suspect but also the petcock might not be closing. It is vacuum operated and shouldn't open without the engine running. Sounds like you had a direct path from the tank to the crank. If the petcock isn't shutting off then you need to manually put it in the off position if the bike isn't running.

Pull off the fuel line from the petcock and see if gas comes out.

I'd drain the crank, fill it with a cheap oil, run it a minute or two, drain that out and fill as normal. Fuel isn't as bad as coolant.

Mitchfloyd sound to me like your float needle is stuck in the carb. I think its time for a good carb cleaning.

HELP!!!

Hello All!!

I have been lurking this board for years and gained alot of useful info. My issue is that I wrecked my bike 4+ years ago. Same day as signing my divorce agreement! Anyway, I have taken it out of storage and replacing parts. New tank, bars ect, ect!

Well i filled tank with new fuel and a large dose of seafoam. Cleaned petcock before i put on new tank. Started bike and let it idle for 15 mins and shut it down and went in house. Came out next night to work on it and started bike to let idle for a few mins and out of the breather hose started coming this oily foam. I immediately shut it down and started checking things out. Crank case is full of gas!!!

Float stuck over night and filled crank case? Any input is appreciated.
