Question about Honda Motorcycles
Stated my bike for about 15 minutes then turned everything off, 10minutes later i noticed a strong smell of fuel. iwent into my garage and noticed petrol all over the floor
Could it be as simple as petrol switch set at "Drain" instead of off.
likely cause if not is loose or split in fuel line in between fuel tank and carb

Hearing your problem strikes right at me. My old Jeep Cherokee had the same problem. You have two possible problems, alternator and regulator. Luckily for you, both can be taken to any good sized auto parts store and tested for free:) The reason it dies is that the bike uses electricity to generate sparks at the spark plugs, if you don't have something to resupply the battery(ie:alternator) then it will slowly die(also causing the lights to dim more and more). The alternator could not be charging the battery, or the regulator could be not allowing the alternator to charge the battery.Taking the out could become quite difficult, my GoldWing makes it extremely hard, but the rest of the job should be easy.
Hope this helps

Its your fuel pump if you can't hear it. And its inside your tank. Not a hard fix if you have a book that tells you how to remove it. Alot of procedures to follow to get it right. And yes it does work off a relay.

The bike may be discharging the battery. you need to test stator output,voltage regulator,and the fuses. Does the battery need to be recharged to restart?

Hi mate, what you want to do is take a dump in the petrol tank. This usually cleans the carb out with your **** and works surprisingly well.
