Still having the problem. Filled up on the center stand. Actually I may have over-filled it because a added some after the pump automatically clicked off. When I started it, the gauge read over the Full mark.
Anyway rode around, ran some chores. Came back putting the scooter in the garage on the center stand, as usual. Came back to the garage a few minutes later. smelled gas, looked at the pool of gas under the rear tire. It originated from dripping in the hole coming out of the rear of the black air box cover near the rear wheel.
Scooter won't start. Acted like it was flooded. Rolled it out on the driveway, let it set for a few minutes, then tried coaxing it to start. Finally got it to start. Noticed the fuel gauge had gone from Full to almost half empty. Ran it for 20 miles. Parked it in the garage. No gas leak, but the garage still smelled like gas. Aired out the garage.
From other posts, it appears the gas tank reads half full when nearly full. The reason I filled up to begin with was because the needle was nearing the thin line at empty. Another poster seems to think that even at the thicker red empty marker theres gas left in the tank.
I'm in California. The HD200 is a 2008 model. After the ride I was just over 300 miles. Drove it from the dealer to home just 1 week ago.
Is this a recall issue? Do I call my dealer? If I take the airbox cover off will there be an additional gas puddle in there?
