1st would check oil for a gas smell, then check petcock to see if it is working properly. Not real sure on 500s, but petcocks tend to go bad on the 800s dumping fuel through the carb into the crankcase. Imagine its the same on yours, if its a vaccum petcock, no off position.

On certain models the book calls to replace the rubber fuel lines about that time. You may be due for some new rubber.
