Be sure to not overfill the tank. Just load it with gas up to the bottom of the neck and be positive you're not cross-threading the cap when twisting it on. If it only leaks when operating, see if there is fuel bubbling out through the vent(s) in the top of the cap or out from under it. Also wipe the tank clean and dry to be positive it is not leaking from a seam or crack in tank or around fuel lines. If leaking from cap, might have to replace as they do have an internal rubber seal that could have gotten dry or cracked. If it's from the tank seams or fuel lines replacement may be neccessary of either one or both.

It sounds like the needle valve in the carburetor is not seating properly to shut off the fuel. A badly worn needle or dirt/debris in the needle seat area can cause this. Disassembly of the carb and a good cleaning will be required.

96 Ninja zx6r Fuel Tank breather hose leaking gas


It sounds like that hose which runs fron the cap area (inside) the fuel tank to the back bottom is broke, if you take it to a Kawasaki dealer and have your dealer call Kawasaki there is a good chance it will get covered as long as the tank is damaged. Those hoses (metal) that run inside the fuel tak sometimes crack, there is really not way of fixing them unless you cut the tank open and then you would need to reweld it.

Something is leaking, and you have fire risk.

Be very aware that any sparks will ignite the vapors, no need to burn, you know.....

My troy-bilt TB425CS gas string trimmer gas lines have gone away. In replacing those lines how far into the tank do they go?


far enough so that you can reach through filler cap and pull the line out to attatch fuel filter.

If your gas tank is cracked or has a hole in it, you have to drain the tank, remove the gas tank and replace it, or have it repaired (if possible). If the gas tank is just leaking from the top and dripping along the side and to the bottom, you will still have to empty the gas tank, and remove it to get a good look at the condition of the gasket. It is not uncommon for these gaskets to become cracked or fragile over time because of the harsh chemicals and cleaning agents used in unleaded gas. If you do decide to have the gas tank removed, I would recommend replacing the fuel pump and fuel filter if your car has high mileage. Please rate this response if you found this helpful.
