The drip, drip, drip of .... gassaria

Found gas dripping on front left side of the bike.

Tore of plastic and got to the circle doohickey with the fuel pump in it. Found gas seeping out and pooling around the top and then dripping over the edge. Pulled pump and inspected...nothing obvious. 2008 1200GS

Any ideas? Nothing has gone wrong with the bike up to now...25k and done all the usual maintenance.

Did you fill it too high and have it sit in the heat.

Fuel line not seated well. I had one on my 08 come off but no leaks.

A cracked flange is a somewhat common issue. See, for example, this thread.
