Anyone heard of any fuel tank problems?
Mine is leaking at the bottom plate that bolts to the tank.
Thought it might be the O-ring but a dealer said that they had one on
their showroom that was leaking also and it needed a new tank.
I have a new O-ring to try

No problems with either of mine. But, the o-ring for the stock tank
will not fit the IMS tank. There's about 1/16 of an inch difference.

I had the same problem a slow drip from around the bolt holes that I was hoping was just a bad o ring or something small. . Took it back to the dealer and after they took the tank out they found it had a hairline crack around the neck of the inside plastic. So a 1 1/2 weeks later kawi got a new tank to my dealer and no leaks. But here is the thing I had already put about 6-7 hours on it with no leakage at all...

Kawasaki has issued an actual recall for the tanks and I believe all units before a certain date fit the bill. My Kawi is experiencing way more than a fuel leak problem but they got that fixed in the meantime. Definitely not a good place to leak gas from because of where the gas will go, explosion!!!!

Just contact your local dealer and they will fix your bike!

Mine is not running right now and Kawi has no idea why...so I am sitting on Bummed street!
