I have posted on a couple of other threads regarding the specific issue I'm having.

Some of the other threads are wandering off on over-fill issues, so I wanted to create a thread specific to this fuel leak. My dealer is absolutely no help without me trailering my bike in.

I let my 109 sit for about 35 days without starting it... (knee surgery).... started it up yesterday and it ran for about 3 minutes, then I smelled gas and saw the pool forming on the floor under left air breather. The bike died like it ran out of fuel. I know others have had the same issue... I'm looking for the shortcut to troubleshooting this. My bike is apart right now for a paintjob so I can't really test anything right now.

Thanks for any info and sorry for yet another fuel leak thread.

Mine is at the dealer now for this. It was coming from the left side behind the breather. My bike sat for about two weeks. When I started the bike it idled high like normal then dropped down and acted like it ran out of fuel. I started it 2-3 times and samething happened (I had to give it some gas to fire). Then I smelled gas and noticed a large puddle under the bike. When the dealer picked it up it leaked a small amount, not like before. They have it now. I will post when I find something out. Goodluck...Please keep us informed.

Mine looked like it was leaking from the tank. I found mine when I came home from Korea. It seemed to fix itself or I just jiggled it hard enough.

Mine has done it twice...in small quantity on cold mornings....I've been watching it like a hawk and it hasn't done it in a few weeks.

It is most certainly is coming from behind the breather....there are 2 lines that run behind and down the breather...I noticed there was a moistness around one of the connections ( with the cheesy clamp) . I bet thats where it's coming from.

I have the same problem as stated in previous post. Mine only leaks after it sits for a few days. I am going to print out all of the relevant posts on this site and give to mechanic at dealer as a point of reference. Now that winter is here I'll let the warranty cover the issue along with my sporadic coolant leak. I'll let you know what I find out in the near future.

I thought it was that cheesy clamp at first as well. I noticed mine would leak from that o-ring mostly on cold mornings. I guess the rubber would shrink in the cold weather. Anyhow, I would bet it's that o-ring, but I haven't seen the bike. Just trying to help. Good luck. :bigthumbsup:

Just to add to the list, so maybe suzuki will take notice.

I make sure to start my bike about every 30days as well, and run it a bit. Started mine last week after sitting for 30 days +/-, and it started leaking gas, noticable pool. Cleaned it up and restarted it again. Gas was flowing all down the left side from behind and/or the breather. It's with the dealship right now getting checked out as to the cause, and of course it's not leaking now. Same as some of the other posters. I directed the dealship to checkout this site. Once they give me a resolution I'll update this posting.

Tempwise it was 40+ degrees, and about 5 in the afternoon, so it wasn't like it was 11am and just turned 40+.

Look at post I placed on 12/27. It address specifically where the leak I has was occurring. There is a replacement part that the dealer can order. Mine hasnt leaked since. Good luck.

Found it and its at the dealer. The O ringes around each end of the fuel rail are leaking and need replaced. they talked to suzuki and S knew about it and are taking care of it.
