 Issue ID802828
 Internal NHTSA #10343904
 Model Year2006
 File date21/05/10
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemOutside temperature: 95+f, sunny, clear no passenger, just driver just pulled into the driveway after an 60 - 90 minute ride. Shutdown motorcycle. Raw gasoline, leaking from the carburetor, dripping onto the engine and exhaust pipes. Amount of gas expelled onto the engine, i would estimate 2oz - 4oz. Fuel delivery system was stock at that time. No modifications made prior to the incident. Read on internet forums for this motorcycle, this is a common issue for this brand of motorcycle. Description of fuel delivery system. From tank - through fuel filter - to electronic fuel pump - to carburetor inlet. Fuel line is rubber 5/16" fuel hose from tank - to filter - to pump. Metal fuel line from fuel pump to carburetor. Metal fuel line was wrapped in 2,000 deg f heat protective tape. This metal fuel line runs in between the cylinder heads of the v-twin engine from the fuel pump to the carburetor. This fuel system is under constant pressure from the fuel pump to the carburetor. Engine heat expands the cooler fuel in the fuel lines and carburetor, resulting in fuel expansion and boil. As a result, raw fuel expands and seeks its way out of the carburetor and onto the engine and exhaust pipes. There is no pressure relief except forcing the fuel out of carburetor. Owner corrections / modifications to prevent future incidents of raw gasoline pouring onto the hot engine and exhaust pipes. 1. Relocate fuel pump to right side away from engine, remove and discard metal fuel line. Utilize 5/16 rubber fuel hose, wire spring hose protection, double insulate with 2,000k heat protective tape. This new line runs in between the cylinder heads to the carburetor. 2. Alternate gravity fed fuel system fix, increase size of float bowl needle and seat. Replace fuel petcock with high flow petcock. Vent stock gas cap. Remove fuel pump.
