disassemble and examine it. Without looking at it I would say to just replace it. I had to cut off the ends of my fuel lines b/c they were rotted from the ethanol. Do you know whether its leaking from one of the hoses or the valve itself?

There are two o-rings for the fuel tap assembly. One is behind the switch (part 92055-1419) and one is between the assembly and tank (part 92055-1112)

The parts are cheap and taking the fuel tap off is fairly easy. If your sure that something in the fuel tap is leaking just reubild it.

And while your at it, consider Ninja92's advice. The fuel lines rot pretty easily especially if the bike has been sitting for a while.

Rebuilding it is the most cost effective option. That is if you are comfortable taking it apart and putting it back together. I would purchase both of these and in the meantime, switch the valve to the OFF position when not in use

It's not hard to do these either on our H models. There is a "mad face" looking diverter seal and an O-Ring that goes on the switch itself. That O-ring is usually the part that failed to cause a leak. Another thing is there is a tension spring in there that seals the switch to the diverter seal. Sometimes if the o-ring is in good shape you can rebend the spring to create more tension to aid in sealing. Had to do it to mine and it's been working good for 6 months so far.

dealer's are expensive for anything. Use something like cheapcycleparts.com. Idk the current reasonable trustworthy site for oem part replacement.
