Got on the "X" saturday morning (1300 R ) and five miles later hit my reserve even tho only 80 mi. into a full tank. Flipped the fuel switch up to reserve and went on. Kept smelling gas and finally looked down to see
gas streaming out the right side of the motor onto the bike and my right pants leg !!! :x Stopped on side of road but no fuel leaking when bike off. Made it back home by riding with fuel switch on reserve long enuf to fill carb and then putting switch down in normal position. By moving switch back and forth I got back home but right thigh red and burned from the chemical and right pants leg soaked with gas.
So Now I have two questions--- What the F____ caused this and how do I
get the gas smell out of my Overpriced nylon riding pants ???
Thanks

Sounds like you have a stuck float if fuel hose is intact and float drain screw closed.

It would be easier to give you advice if you'd start it back up just long enough to see where the gas is coming from.
