Trying to get ready for Dirtquake!!!

Aaahhh!! Trying to get ready for Dirtquake!!! Bought my first car (Daihatsu gran move) to get there. Still need to find out if I can fit the GR650 in the car...! 

 New wheels arrived, looking great! Could use some help. :) 
Yesterday we wanted to change the oil, normally it contains 2.4 liter of oil. It flowed out much faster than normal and it didn't stop after 2.4 liters. I think it was something like 5 liters this time and it smelled like gasoline, shit! So how can that happen? Troubles with the carbs is my first guess. Have to find out this weekend because I'm leaving to Dirtquake next Friday! 

 Oh, who's also planning to go to Dirtquake this year? More Dutch guys? Leaving Amsterdam on friday around 17.00 hour. Still have to see hom much space I have left in the Gran Move but I think I have an extra spot  left in my car so if you would like to go to Dirtquake send me an email. lennardschuurmansATgmail.com

Carb float, needle and seat leaking past the rings into the motor. Fix needle and seat or just make sure you shut off the gas when not running till you do.

Fuel in your oil means you've left your fuel tap/petcock on & the needle & seat in your carbs bowl has crap stuck in it.
Not good as when the fuel is leaking pass your piston rings it's washing the oil from the bore causing the chance of scoring.

Looks good but rear tyre's going to touch the mudguard.

Whoah looking good!!!
What is that pose though? Looks a bit exorcist-ish ha.
What Kevin and Phrog said sounds right, clean carbs, fill her up, take it easy for the first few miles and gooooooooo.
Have fun buddy, wish I could've joined you in DA GRAN MOOOOOOVE!
