    Fuel leak 2000 Sprint RS 955

    So I had a strong odor of gasoline after going for a ride. Checked it over and found nothing. Ride the best bike ever to work and smelled it again. Rode home abd tore it apart. Attached are two photos of the fuel pump area. I took the supply line off abd checked the o ring which looks fine. Any other ideas to fix this? Thanks

    This was a known failure/fault and Triumph actually had a recall to rectify the coupling connector. Looking at the photo, the red alloy couplings on your hoses suggest that the recall was carried out, however, the plastic fitting in the tank that they plug into are prone to fail when the plastic gets old and brittle and or the o- ring swells.

    There is an aftermarket supplier for the coupler fittings. In a thread here a few years ago, 2doggs posted a link to it IIRC.
