Took out my 2002 Speed Triple today for the first time in an embarrassingly long time. Maybe almost a year. She's been stored inside and on the trickle charger so she started right up and performed just great up and down Angeles Crest.

Upon return I noted a smell of gas. Ugh. Found the source. A pretty consistent drip from behind the right hand plastic panel below the tank/seat area. There are two connectors and they both appear to be dripping. One is silver and the other one is red. Photo attached.

Simple fix? Suggestions?

you still have the plastic fittings on there... trash them, replace with metal ones.


Should be able to find the part # with a search.... this was discussed to death a couple years ago.

I released the lower red one and the fuel stopped leaking. Presuming the o-ring on the male red end needs replacing then.

Thanks for the note about the metal fittings. I'll look into that..
