    Just sprung a leak from the high presure fitting holding the quik connect hose. Was able to patch it with teflon tape to ride home. This is 1 of 4 2005 2006 hp2 in cabo san lucas mine is the newest and the latest to crack. Teflon will not last as the gas eats it in a day. Anyone else been doused with gas at speed will make a permanent fix before buying new one / any idea what sealant will repel gas

    You need the replacement fuel cap which has the reinforced (steel) threaded fittings for the hoses. The original one was made by Continental, the replacement I believe is Siemens. The cracks radiate out and allow fuel to seep at best or squirt at worst. Had that happen on my Megamoto, was a warranty fix, but since it's a fuel system concern you may be in luck and get it with some creative negotiations.
