Okay guys, I'm starting to wonder if I have a "magic touch" of destroying mortorcycles now?!?!
I adjusted the idle first and syphoned out the old gas. I put in some fuel system cleaner as well and then went to put in the new gas I had bought that was ethanol free 89.
However, as I did this I noticed that as I was pouring the gas in, there was a leak coming from under the bike. It wasn't the same amount I poured in, so most of the gas is staying in the tank. And it does NOT continue to constantly leak out. I pour some in, stop, it leaks for a second or two after, then stops.
I looked under the bike and the "hose"/"tube" that's leaking does not appear to be "cut" or "broken" off - at least that I can tell. And I looked around thinking it must've come loose from somewhere and I could reattach, but found nothing. Unless I'm just not looking in the right area, but I looked all around and there's not a lot of slack left with the tube. This is the first time I've filled up the tank so never noticed it before but never looked under the bike either to see if it was already like that.
I haven't even put in one gallon yet so it can't be overflow. Maybe 1 gallon tops I guess but doubt it.
What do you guys think this might be and how can I fix it? I haven't tried to restart the bike yet due to this because I assumed this was either part of my problem, or yet another one I need to fix first anyway.
Sorry if this is a "noob" question, but...well.....honestly.....that's what I am I guess!
Thanks for any help, I appreciate it!
