i have a 94 flhtc. , kept smelling a little gas when riding...
took air breather cover off and found small amount of gas inside cover,,, with cover off and eng. idleing, i see a small amt. of gas driping out of acceleator pump nozzle. i think this is were the gas is coming from.
if you give full throttle the acc. nozzle has a clean spray...just didn't know if it should drip when idleing.
thanks for any reply.

No it shouldn't drip at idle, but it used to be a common problem.

The accellerator pump can be modified and in some cases it can be corrected by altering carb adjustments.

It still shouldn't go into the aircleaner, sounds like you have some reversion. Any number of causes, from ignition timing to pipes or valve timing, not to speak of mechanical issues.

Start by fixing the pump.
