Re: Fuel leak issue, help please!
Two other things to check are the fuel hose that attaches to the petcock/fuel valve, and the petcock itself.
The hose is prone to cracking with age, and the petcock can leak as the rubber seal wears out. Easist fix is a new hose, and for the petcock, you can seal it up with JB-Weld, or you can buy a new one.
But if the gas is coming from the bottom right side of the bike (from the fat hose), then it's likely fuel overflow. Try to leave about an 1" free air in your filler neck of the tank.
