I haven't read much about this but my mechanic says it's pretty common. I have an 03 RT and I noticed my gas mileage started to go down. A week later I noticed that the bike always smelled like gas and several days after that I saw a small puddle of gas under the right side of the bike almost under the front foot peg. I took it over to the shop and when I got half way through the story he said "and there was a small puddle of gas under the right side of the bike." Apparently the quick disconnects for the gas tank are made of plastic and over time they crack. He popped the body work off the right side and had the whole thing done in shorter time than it would have taken me just to take off the plastic. I was surprised to see the disconnect leaking fuel with a visible crack. He replaced the two onnections with metal ones and says more recent bikes come with metal connectors from the factory. Just curious, anyone else had this?
