I just purchased my first bike a couple weeks ago, my new to me 02' Ninja ZZR250. When I got it I knew it would need a bit of work, it would run, but not well. After about ~30 minutes it would stall, and the bike would heat up very quickly.
I took it to Burnaby Kawasaki, picking it up under two weeks ago. I've taken it for a couple rides, and it's been running well, no issues on the first few runs. Wednesday I went on a longer afternoon ride. The bike seemed to be running fine, though yesterday went I went to the parade to head to work, I found the bike dripping gas fairly quickly. 10-20 drips / minute. I tired to start it to see if it would even start and would be able to drive over to Kawasaki. When I tried to start the bike, gas came streaming out of my exhausts (video below). Over the last ~24 hours I've lost most of my tanks gas.
I'm now looking at having to get towed to Burnaby Kawasaki. I have asked if it's a cab issue if theres a service warranty. They didn't say too much, they said they'll need to take a look at the bike, understandably.
Can anyone give me an idea of what's happening?

Edit: Burnaby Kawasaki is picking it up tonight. I work till 10, and they have been kind enough to work around my schedule and pick it up after I've finished work. Thanks Burnaby Kawasaki!
Edit: Okay, so I've got my bike back from Burnaby Kawasaki inspected fuel system and found that petcock reserve filter had come off and was free in tank allowing sediment to flow into carburetors. They disassembled carbs and cleaned them out. They reassembled and re glued filter. Balanced carbs and ran up motorycle.
They said this wasn't related to the initial work done. In a carb cleaning they don't normally look at the petcock reserve filter, and it was just bad timing that it happened at the same time.
Burnaby Kawasaki has been great to work with and have been impressed with their cooperation to resolve this issue and get the bike up and running again quickly!
