Gas smell and liquid coming from left side hose

Went on a quick 5 minute ride from home just now and within minutes a hose that is positioned next to the waterpump but does not appear to be connected to the water pump that drains straight to the ground is shooting out what smells like gasoline.

it stops after shutting down bike but when you restart it it is a steady stream of what smells like gas, what is this?

is this the fuel tank overflow? if so why is it doing it even though the tank is not filled up to the brim? i checked the gas cap valve the other day and took it apart and put back together so that it would not clog, well the sound of the air esclaping is gone but now i have this new problem why is it doing it?

is this something to be concerned about?

its not a little gas it was like you had a fire hose on.

You have a burst hose mate, in the tank, where are you CA ? Carbon cannister ? To me it sounds like a hose in the tank. Dont ride it, strip it, and replace the hoses. Have a look Mate.

Exclamation HHhhmm

Maybe not a burst hose, but only running out when bike is running ? Just open it up and check, you can't ride around like that !

Gas smell and liquid coming out back end....would have totally described Randy.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

well will hav eto check later today but looks like the vent hose from the gas cap one of them is not there and fell off, so will have to reconnect that and see what happens then.

finally checked it out the one hose fell off or ripped right at the clamp at the gas cap, so have to figure out a way to get the hose out of the gas with a hanger and then tighten a hose clamp.

if you remove the bottom of the tank where the fuel pump is and such do you have to reseal it? or is it just a rubber gasket?

the genuises at mv made the vent hoses hold on by clamps that you can't get off because they put it in such a way that the hose clamps you can't unscrew them from the opening where the gas cap is. only way to get to them is by taking off the tank.
