Fuel leakage
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:23:22 AM »
I top filled my tank before I put it away for the winter. The bike is stored in my garage and it has a temperature around 5 Celsius. This weekend the temperature was about 10 Celsius. But now it came some petrol just below my dashboard. When I shake my bike front and backwards it is dropping fuel from the same place.

What has happened? Anyone who knows?

Under the dashboard is where the Evaporative Emission Control System Canister is located.  :028:

You may have filled you petrol tank bit too much fuel and with temperature increase the expanding fuel may have been forced up the pipe through the purge valve to this unit and then flooded out  :138:

 :762:   exactly right, if I was a betting man I would put money on that explanation   (however I don't bet)  :2:

I wonder if leaving the fuel filler cap slightly open might help

I took  out about 1/2 litre petrol from the tank and the problem is solved. Looks like you are right.
Thanks :763:
