    Smell Of Fuel?

    Should it smell like fuel when you take the seat off? 95 slt750.

    Hello,

    You may smell the 2 stroke oil and some fuel.

    If you beleive that there is a leak of some sort, clean the bilge out with some Simple Green or bige cleaner, then run the ski and check for leaks.

    Make sure your fuel vent line is hooked up. It goes to the little black vent in front of the seat. Mine came unhooked on me last year.

    I would find the source and get it taken care of. That's a volatile situation and it can and will blow up under your butt. All it takes is a little spark anywhere and kaboom. Here's a pic of my buddies Kawi that blew up.

    Hey - I totally have this problem. The fuel smell is very evident with mine, so much so that I can smell it with the seat on.

    I'll check my vent for sure. ASny other common spots on the SLTX 1050 ?

    Thanks
