Just today my wife told me that she can smell petrol from the scooter, when she rode it back home today. I had a check underneath and inbetween two hoses (as shown in picture, if u can see it that is), is a plastic item which seems to be leaking the petrol. I was wondering if anyone knew what it is?

Thanks guys!

Its the shiny object near the middle top right hand corner.

Pictures a bit blurry but it could be the fuel filter.Do the hoses run through it?

Image is a shocker, but from your discription it sounds like the inline fuel filter

lol sorry.. camera phone

yes the hoses run through it.. if it is the filter then that means the filter is cracked?? because the hoses appear fine..

thanks for heads up guys, one more question, do fuel filters differ from model to model on scooters or bikes even.. or is there universal models..

It would vary depending on engine sizes and flow rates.

My scooter has a smaller filter than a motor bike;)
