Could there be a seal missing on the gas line?

  • Brian Mathews May 11, 2010

    uh, you got this listed under a telephone?  What year is the bike?  is it fuel injected? Is it an FLSTF or FLSTFI ?

    It could be a number of things but the carb or FI are completely different.

Most fuel leaks are caused by problems with the float bowl ( overflow not shuting off) You really don't give much info so we have to assume its a carb.

Sounds like the top plate gasket is leaking. If it is, you will need a new gasket and 10 new sealing screws. Not a bad job to do, but your bike should be under warranty, so let the dealership do it.

2003 fatboy coughs,spits or hicups

Hi Anonymous, popping, coughing, spitting, or backfiring through the carburator is usually caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck

Hi Anonymous, you may have the begining of fuel injectors or fuel filter clogging up from evil ethanol sludge and his buddies dirt, rust and water. You should also check your gas cap and fuel vent lines for proper function, also the fuel line between the pump and check valve at the bottom of the tank for pin holes. Try using a fuel stabilizer (Sta-Bil) and an injector cleaner (Rislone) to help evict unwanted tennants. For mor information on your issue please visit the websites below.

Fuel leak at bottom of petcock valve 2000 fatboy

Sounds to me like a cracked fuel line. No leaks when sitting still but add the torque of the engine turning over and the vibration and the line flexes enough to leak. If not a fuel line, the weld may be cracked where the petcock mounts to the tank or the petcock itself may be cracked. Is the petcock water trap screwed on tightly?
