    fuel leak

    Ok so it's service time off year. The Rsv r was running well last year, however it has started leaking fuel from under the tank. As it's a plastic tank I've read that they are prone to leaking where the fuel pump is underneath. Before I start taking things apart has anybody had this problem and managed to repair?

    Cheers

    Might just be a perished gasket/ oring, I have one in stock if you need it.

    Thanks Mark,

    I'll know better once I take the fuel pump off.
