Question about adding too much fuel
Iíve done searches but found nothing so hereís my situation on my 2004 VTX 1300. The bike is bone stock.
I just got the bike this month but have used a few tanks of gas already and the bike runs great.
The last 2 times that I filled the gas tank, I put in as much gas as possible (probably to high in the filler neck?).
Anyway, both times I rode 2 miles to get home after filling with gas and I notices that gas had run onto the paint on the gas tank.
Nothing dripping so obviously not a lot.
Right away I wiped the gas off and then waxed the tank.
Today, after waxing the tank and waiting about 3 hours, I went out for a ride of about 40 miles.
Got home and no fuel on the tank but I parked in the garage and closed the garage door. When I went out to the garage an hour later, there was a really strong fuel smell in the garage.
The petcock is dry and I canít find any sign of wet fuel under the bike.
Your thoughts are appreciated.
