Some how half of a tank of gas landed in my airbox, I did have my carb overflow tube blocked, but had the gas turned off.
How does this happen, had so much gas in there it got into the oil as well.

Mine has done the same thing, but I had the gas on. I know that it is from having the drain tube plugged but I thought that if you turned the gas off it would not flow in. I guess the only way to stop it is to take the plug out and turn the gas off. Did it hurt anything with it being in your oil or did you find it before you ran it?
There is still gas in the lines when you shut off the fuel valve. I try and shut my fuel off and let the bike idle for a minute to burn some off the gas in the line. There is enough gas trapped to let the bike idle for a couple minutes.
we had to drain the oil, it was so over flowed, had to drain it by tippin it on its side and out the hole you usually use to add oil, it was a pain!
