    leaking fuel from drain plugs

    Hi guys. I recently bought a 2007 kawasaki stx-15f (65 hours), and have had it out on the lake twice. Each time after taking it out, I pull the drain plugs, and tip it back for a few minutes to let it drain. And both times there seems to be fuel mixed with the water that drains out.

    Is this normal?

    I should also mention that the day I bought it, I brought it out to the lake, and couldn't get it started. I immediately brought it back to the dealer, who couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. They ended up taking it to an actual Kawasaki dealership. Then after 2 weeks of deliberation, they figured out that there was water in the fuel tank, and 2 fuel cells were flooded. I don't even know what the hell a fuel cell is...but they finally got it fixed. Since then I have had it out twice, as I said. And it's been running great. I'm just worried seeing the fuel coming out of the drain plugs and hoping it's not related to the first issue.

    Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    TAKE IT BACK TO THE DEALER THAT IS DANGEROUS, YOU HAVE A CRACKED FUEL TANK AND IT WILL BE REPLACED UNDER A RECALL FROM KAWASAKI, DO NOT RIDE IT AGAIN, TAKE IT STRAIGHT TO THE DEALER.

    the fuel tank recall information is in the how to and faq section but its burried under threads that arent supposed to be in that section.

    seriously dont ride it without getting a new fuel tank
