I drive my Spyder *711 for 780 km now and I have that serious problem:

I have no leak on the floor , no over flow , even if my tank is 1/4 ,
It is not from my muffler.
Same problem event if my Spyder is turn off for 10 minutes

Could you help me !!!

Possibly just fumes venting from the tank. All tanks need to vent one way or another. Most are to open air, in California they vent into a charcoal canister and then drain back into the tank. As long as its not leaking I wouldnt worry about it too much :D

Hate to open this thread up again, but...
2017 F3 with strong gas smell. I replaced the evap can, still has smell. The gas cap seems to be well seated, Vacuum pull when I open it.
Thoughts on additional things to check?
I was thinking about a canisterectomy (?) but the tutorials are all older bikes with a 2 port evap can, my 2017 is a 3 port evap can, not sure what to do with the 3rd incoming line.

Well you could have opened a new thread !!
Has any one ELSE been able to detect this odor except for you ?
How long has it been like that ??

Have you considered letting a shop look at it......or smell it as the case may be ?
I think that might be preferable to taking a wild shot at it yourself.

I'm not sure this is true but I THINK that the ethanol free gas smells different and not as much as the regular stuff.
Might want to use a couple of tanks of that and see if anything changes.
