Fuel leak


Recommended Posts

Just topped off the tank, rode the 5 min home. Now I have a near constant flow of fuel coming out of the overflow tube on the brake side. Any ideas??? Thanks!

On the few occasions where I topped off and then rode only a short distance to my office or home, this same thing happened.


The key is to not fill it up all the way to the top of the opening.

Happened to me a few times.  I’ve found that if my fuel guage shows full, then its a good chance of overflow.  Tip, if you look back and its pouring out thru the overflow tube, pop open the fuel cap.
