Leaving fuel in the tank

What can happen if you leave fuel in the tank for about 5 months without starting the bike? Does this cause any issues?

Actually I dont care about the fuel, Im dumping it. What Im worried about is if the gas in the tank could have created some mechanical problems within the engine.
if the petcocks are off then there should be no damage but if they are not then the worst is probably dirty carbs.....not a big deal really....
