For all you mechanics

A guy is selling his EX 250 with the gas left on too long. See http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/mcy/112195946.html . What could be the issues here?

Probably carbs will have to be thoroughly cleaned along with the inside the petrol tank filter to possibly new fuel lines. Then you will have to look into the interior of the petrol tank for it could be rusting which most sensibly would mean a new tank. Definately jocks up the true cost of the bike.

I was just over on the 250 Ninja Forum. One possibility is that the floats in the carb didn't seal and gas got into the oil. If this guy ran the bike for any length, then there are more problems. I was thinking about getting this as a project, but it looks too fouled up.
