So, I have a vn1600 classic great reliable bike... until a week ago. I noticed a Very strong fuel smell, but I couldnt find any leaks. The smell got pretty bad, so I decided to start looking for the source. I removed the seat and noticed that there are 2 welded on tabs which uses 2 12 inch bolts to secure the tank to the bike. The left tab was visibly wet and smelled of gas, but I still couldn't find exactly where the gas was draining into. I unlocked and removed the left side cover and there was a pool of gas inside that cover. I immediately unhooked the battery cables to prevent a fire or even explosion. Has anyone with a VN1600 classic experienced this with a year other than a 2003? Mine is a 2006. Upon doing research on this issue there is ONLY a recall on the 2003's! Which is really DUMB as the 2003, 2006 and i'm sure other years have the same EXACT gas tank construction. Any info will be appriciated, TIA.
