    VX110 Fuel smell

    I recently purchased an 05 VX110 Deluxe. When I remove the seat I get a strong fuel odor in the engine compartment is this normal? After I leave the seat off for a while the smell goes away.

    Thanks

    I would check all the hoses going to and from the gas tank.
    Fuel filler neck
    Gas Tank vent hose
    Fuel supply line to fuel rail
    Look for any wet spots near fuel injector(s)

    I would also crank it up on a flush and check for leaks. Just to make sure you don't see a wet spot anywhere on the fuel line.

    Gas Tank vent and hoses part number 26-28
    Fuel filler hose #24


    Also check fuel rail assembly

    Alright so I checked all the fuel lines and injectors everything looks good. I only smell the fuel when I first take the seat off then after about three to five minutes the smell goes away. Should I smell any fuel when I remove the seat? I can also smell a little fuel when I open the front storage area??

    Thanks

    It's quite common on the VX & FX range to smell fuel as you describe......Always remove seat if possible when not in use, if this is not possible then always remove seat for a few minutes to vent fumes before starting motor.
