    Small Leak ?

    The bike stalled, the owner pulled to the side of the road and noticed flames coming from under the tank; he ran away; this ensued.

    Fuel pump housing or disconnects? Glad he was OK.

    Interesting that the model decal and roundel and paint on the left side of the tank survived.

    My son's K75S endured the same fate a number of years ago. He was sitting at a red light when he felt heat through the leathers. Instead of dismounting immediately he pulled the bike into the adjacent Long John Silvers parking lot where it melted down. He had almost a full tank of fuel...hot fire.

    Should be covered under the current recall. Tow it to the dealer.
