Ok,i just bought an 89 kawasaki that had sat for two years with no fuel stabilizer or being started. I had the plugs changed and the gas drained and it ran sweet for about two hours. Now it wont idle unless i give it gas and it has a horrible miss. Gas is even pouring out the exaust. Can anyone give me some advice.

Sounds like your carburetors are gummed up. Or else something in the tank finally worked its way to a carb and a float is stuck. You should probably pull them off, disassemble and clean them good. It's not that difficult a job.

The misfire is probably due to a fouled plu/s due to the excessive amount of fuel that is going into the motor. At this level of fuel flow you will probably find that much of it is also finding its way past the rings and into the crankcase. Check the oil level, it is probably too high by now and the oil is surely contaminated with fuel.
Have this problem sorted as you will not be doing the engine any good.
