I have a 04mt-01 and mine did it to me yesterday for the first time. There was so much gas that it soaked through my leathers and through my shirt. I noticed a nice burning sensation and by the time I could get stopped I couldn't get my leather and shirt off fast enough. Luckly I was at a place that I could wash off with soap and water. I've never been burned before by gas and I didn't know it would do that. This must get fixed. I believe that the dealer will replace the cap under warranty, but I will find out on Tuesday for sure.

Gas leaking when key turned to run position


Hi, Joshua fuel leaks are dangerous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

FUEL ISSUES WITH CARB..


the only thing i can suggest, is a sticky needle and seat, if fuel is coming out the over flow, then the float is not shutting off the fuel running into the carb, it has to go some where, so it comes out the overflow. Pressure in the tank wont have any affect at all with your problem. I would take apart the carby again, and check and clean the needle and seat.
Hope this helps

1985 nighthawk sc 700 leaks small amount of gas from left side carb


Is it leaking when you have it sittin strait up and down and running? If it leaking when it is not running then I would say you have a sticking fuel float.
