Laugh Fuel Lines

My 01 did the exact same thing. After riding I smelled like gasoline. i found the crimped on connector loose where the upper hose connects to the tank. While riding the wind would catch the seeping fuel & mist it on me. You can reach the down the right side of the tank from the front & touch the ends of the fuel lines. If your fingers smell of gas you found your problem. Simply remove the tank & replace both lines. Discard the crimp on clamps & use proper clamps designed for fuel injection & you will be all set.
