Benelli/Andretti X50 Scooter Gas Tank Leaks

I read this elsewhere and don't know if anyone here rides one of these scooters but I thought is would be good to get the word out. Some of the Andretti and Benelli scooters have gas tanks and fuel line that leaking with catastrophic results. the NHTSA is looking into it but better safe than sorry.

If you have one or know of someone who has one, please follow these links and take the needed actions.

Looks like they tried to one-up the Genuine Scooter Atomic Fireball....

Thanks for posting that--I wasn't aware there was a problem, and there's a local dealer selling scads of those particular models to college students. I might poke around a bit...

Yikes. I wonder if there's an easy fix for those who have 'em. I know early Stella owners had to check the fuel line carefully after delivery.

MRP is an aftermarket supplier of scoot parts and they picked up on this in a posting on their site a couple months ago.

they are warning against some "quick fixes" being done by some dealers.
