Pressure sound and small gas leak

Hey everyone... Put about 1,000km on my 07 Roadstar during Bike Week in Daytona last Thur-Sun. Frickin fantastic...

After I shut the bike down a pressure release sound would occur and it would puke out a bit of fuel around the air filter. Noticed it a couple of times - not every time however... Never seen this before but first time Roadstar owner.

Any feedback or input on what this could be, solution etc. Would be appreciated. Cheers.

Re: Pressure sound and small gas leak

I spoke to my dealer today (by the way. Kelly's Cycle in Hamilton, Ontario are fantastic)

Anyways...the RoadStar has an automatic decompression system after shut down. It is recommended NOT to give it any gas at shut down. The auto decompression will flush any unused fuel.

All is well in RoadStar land...

Cheers
