Fuel weeping

Post by mphayes » Wed May 07, 2014 7:57 am

Having problems when using or moving bike with fairly full tank of fuel on my 83 Hailwood
I have a circle of fuel around base and can hear it venting. Is it not venting properly.
Looking for feed back before I just start buying !

Thanks..........m

remove and clean your fuel cap, there is a small hole in it somewhere for this........ sounds like it's plugged up.

Thanks Steve, wondered if it may be gasket issue.
I'll try low air pressure to clear.
Was thinking possible gasket issue.
Again thanks..........m

I believe it will vent were the key inserts, correct me if I'm wrong about it.

It may vent threw key, not sure.
I don't have issue with Darmah gas cap, no key.
I think it's venting but some how fuel is coming with air.

Again I have a circle of fuel/moisture? present on top of tank??
Thanks for any replies...m

best solution was to replace cap. Thanks Steve and others for suggestions.
Steve thanks for customer service and getting new cap out for me.
Hope I've enclosed picture so you can see my work in progress.
Have screen on and lower fairing is done just like the look without it.
