Exclamation Quick Disconnect Warning

Hi All,
Just a reminder to those, like me, that become oblivious to potential problems. I just did the 12,000 mile tuneup on the bike about a month ago, and the bike, a 2001 LT is running great. Smelled a faint gasoline odor for a couple of days, and pulled the right fairing and cut on the ignition and got a stream about 4 feet out from the bike. On my way home from work, I lost about 1/4 a tank of gas!! Man, I am so lucky that it did not catch on fire. First time I've had problems with the disconnects in close to 120,000 miles on two LT's. Always replaced the o-rings etc.....Sooooo, replace the disconnects with stuff available through our friends on the list, or the dealer's upgraded male connector. Best to all, see you in Gillette. Bob

Re: Quick Disconnect Warning

Would be good to file a safety defect report with your NHTSA. If we get enough reports - may prompt a recall or at least an investigation.
