    My bike ran for the first time in a number of years today much to my relief.
    All sounded good but i had petrol pouring out of one of the four carburetta
    overflows. Can someone tell me why this is happening and what i should do to
    stop it?

    Probably the float is gummed up and won't rise in the float chamber to cut
    off the fuel dropping into the float chamber under gravity. Either that or
    the fuel cut off valve that the float operates, is itself stuck.
