Weird Gas Leak
I started my 94 GL1500 today after several months downtime and it has a strong gasoline smell. It has always had a slight gasoline smell after shutting it off since I bought it used over 10 years ago. Last year I replaced the vacuum fuel shutoff guts and that helped reduce the odor and stopped visual gasoline. Today I started tracking the leak down and found it is dripping very, very slowly (maybe one drip every 6-10 minutes off the plenum for the #6 cylinder when the bike is on the side-stand. Does anyone have ideas?
I had the carbs rebuilt at a Honda shop many years ago and never noticed any change in the smell when parked in the garage until the vacuum shutoff packed it in then it went back to very slight odor after I fixed that so I think this is something that was always there and just crapped out or it just started. In other words not something that has progressed over the years.
Anyway, if anyone has suggestions I appreciate it... plain
