After a run I have noticed one or two drips of petrol comming from one of the three rubber hoses near the side stand. I've just recently bought the bike and wonder if this is normal.
2009 CBF 1000 with 8000miles on the clock.Fairing lowers fitted.

Cheers,
Ian

Simple stuff first off.

Overfilled tank?
Bike & tank stood/used in the current heat?
Cold full/ish tank taken out into the sun?
If so, expansion will occur and fuel will leak out of the overflow pipe, which, in this scenario, is normal.
