    G"Day anyone, I have a 1999 RK Classic efi 1450cc.
    I have a leak within the fitting that goes from the tank to the hose.
    The fitting is not a quick release from the tank. The fitting screws out from the tank and has an O ring in the top, this O ring looks good. The leak is in the swivel part and when the motor is running and you put pressure within the join it can spray fuel out.
    Is there any way of tightning it up or is it a case of throwing out and buying a new hose?
    Thanks Wiz
