Re: Fuel lines and neutral switch
Did you find and fix the cause of this?
I have just had exactly the same experience.
Update- My bike had also been laid up for a few years, and I had the exact same issue with the neutral switch / light, and a petrol / oil mix flooded out when I removed the neutral switch too.
I had cleaned the carbs and got it running again, but looking around the forums and elsewhere it seemed the cause was likely to be a stuck float / float valve. I took my carbs apart and re-cleaned them again and noticed that the plunger in the valve on 2 of the carbs was stuck and did not depress. A bit of carb cleaner and force and they now spring up and down again.
I put the bike back together, drained the oil and put fuel in the tank with the tap on, and the sump plug out, and left overnight.
No fuel had leaked overnight so hopefully this has resolved the issue.
