    I have a 2020 Svartpilen 401 with only about 400km on it. At the end of my ride today, I filled up the gas tank. When I arrived home, I noticed the smell of gas and saw a puddle on the ground beneath the bike. It’s dripping from a 1/8 inch diameter hose that is hanging down just below the engine on the right side of the bike.

    To orient you in the picture below, that’s the foot break in the top center of the first photo. I’ve circled the end of that hose where the gas is dripping out.

    Not sure if that is expected? Is that hose supposed to be there open like that? Something to do with over filling the tank maybe? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Appears that this is working as designed. When I open the gas cap, I can see what looks like an overflow drain towards the very top.
