    Fingers crossed brother !!!

    I was obsessing with this problem...whenever something is wrong with any of my bikes then it bugs the hell out of me
    I was walking around it and poking at it over and over....

    but I'm really relieved even if this repair won't hold for long I know exactly what was happening and that gives me peace of mind...any way fingers crossed
    bike is in the front room and it is not smellllllyyyyyyyyy !

    it looks like it was manufacturing problem
    brass didn't get welded in correctly all around ...

    A great job you've done of determining the cause and a very thorough solution. I hope you don't have any further problems with this. It makes me feel lucky that I haven't had any similar problem with my Terra, my ability to perform that kind of repair would be severely lacking.

    Thanks. so far no problem and every day I take the seat off and smell it and shake the bike and so far so good. It was a manufacturing defect from the start
    Im sure of that, some hard off road and a few low downs must have done the rest and gas started sipping between the black tank and inner liner
    around the opening for the fuel pump, the voids around the brass sets got filled with gas and under pressure it started leaking.

    You must have some great riding in Australia mate

    ride safe

    The grass always seems greener elsewhere, but in Virginia USA you've probably got more good riding roads than the whole of australia combined.

    Oh man...I don't complain...Virginia is heaven for riding, beautiful roads, lush rich green and scenic, mountains and huge rivers...
    but Australia mate ...that is cool..I imagine chasing Kangaroos on a dirt bike in the open bush...at least that is what I heard from a fellow sailor who stopped in our village ....best regards

    Interesting enough I noticed wonderful improvement in engine behavior after fixing the gas leak.
    Idle is stable and doesn't oscillate anymore. It seems confident and it purrs like a kitty
    slow speed is stable without any jerking.

    it seems to me because of the leak there was no stable pressure in the tank causing the idle speed to waver and slow speed to be jerky
