I have an 83 Aspencade GL1100. Just went to start it and have fluid ( Smells like gas but dirty) pouring out of the crankcase breather canister. Recently had carbs pulled and cleaned. Any ideas what problem might me. Sure seems like the bike is developing the same old age problems as myself.

I recommend you post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here, and a lot more people frequent over there. Just a few of us greeters hang out over here on a regular basis.

Welcome. I had that problem with a 450 Honda years ago. Seems one of the floats was stuck, and allowed gas to keep flowing. It ended up in the crankcase. Not sure if that's your problem, but something to look at.

check you oil level. If it is really high, then like dwsonar says, you probably have a sticking float. You should empty your crankcase immediately to get the gas out of there.

The canister is removable for emptying. It should be emptied on a regular schedule. Un-clamp the hose, remove the mounting bolt with a 10mm socket and dump the contents.

Welcome to the forum from North Central Texas!
I could be wrong.
I think that the Crankcase Breather Storage Tank is a sealed hose/tank system, not anyway for it to overflow, connected to the bottom of the Air Box. It is used to drain moisture/fluids/contaminates from the air box. The one on my '83 was cracked and I resealed it with ABS Cement. The tank should be emptied every 4000 miles or more often if riding in rain or at full throttle. The normal contents is a dirty, oily, mess and smells like dirty oil/fuel, orafter ridingin rain, like water/oil.
The Crankcase Breather opening is located at the left side, top rear of the crankcase and has a breather hose connected to the bottom of the Air Box for venting the crankcase back into the intake of the engine.
I don't think there is a way for fuel to get into the Crankcase Breather Storage Tank even if you have a float sticking.
I do suggest that you checkyour oil level to make sure you don't have a float sticking allowing fuel to pour into the crankcase. If the Crankcase Breather Storage Tank is leaking, suggest that you seal it.
Maybe someone else has other suggestions or correct me if I am wrong.

i also believe you have a fuel in your oil, check your oil levels, be careful, you might have fuel on one cylinder, it can hydro lock and can damage your engine rly bad. pull all plugs out, check floats.

Welcome to the forum. As already mentioned there should be a canister for the collection of blow-by liquids that requires periodic emptying. But it won't hurt to check the level and condition of the engine oil... :gunhead:
