Fuel leak only when running - QD?
My apologies for being away from the board for quite a while. Life. Y'know?
The subject is a 2000 K1200LT with about 50,000 miles.
The last two or three times I've ridden my bike, I have had a small gas leak. Apparently very small. It's on the right side because my right shoe smells like gas... but not enough to make it "wet" with gas (like the leaky carbs on my 1972 R60/5).
I have noticed no smell of gas in the garage, no gas spot on the floor, no other indications of a leak -- apparently it only leaks when it's running, or maybe with the bike a certain angles.
Does this sound like a failed quick disconnect fitting? Or does it sound like something else since it's apparently only leaking while running?
If you look at the map and don't care where you are, you're not lost.
