The bike is a 1998 K1200RS. Had to replace the warped leaking original tank that had already been fixed once by previous owner under warranty.

Problem: there is consistently a faint fuel smell in the garage in the morning after being closed up at night. Does not happen unless the bike is there, so no other source.

Have checked and had dealer mechanic check for leaks in entire fuel system...none have been found.

The charcoal canister was removed by the previous owner.

The dealer/mechanic think the fuel smell is from normal venting without the canister in place. Makes little difference if the tank is full or half empty.

Any one else had this problem?

Any possible solutions?

Thanks for your thoughts and experiences.
