    Gas smell

    This is prob a stupid question but I must ask because it is bothering me. I lifted up my seat on my 09 Seadoo rxt to do something with my battery and there is a very strong gas smell right under the seat.

    I know the gas tank is there but it is A very strong gas Oder...is this normal?

    I would check your fuel hoses and breather just to be on the safe side!

    last time out i popped the seat to check everything before the ride and i smelled gas. plugged in the key and noticed my pressure would drop to 0 a few seconds after the pump stoppped priming. I found the RIVA RRFPR pre fabbed hose otiker clamp was loose...not sure how long that was like that.

    Check your gas cap. My TX had a crack in the cap and you could smell gas everytime you would lift the front storage or take off the seat.

    Yes! Shutting the hood with the cap off will do this every time!
    Hmm, anyone make any billet caps for our ski's yet?
