My 03 SV leaks fuel at the below fuel hose between the 2 throttle bodies:

The problem is the hose clamps got loosen over time. There is no need to replace the hose, just to replace the 2 hose clamps with those of screw type then it should be fine.

If you experience any of the following, you may want to check if you have the same fuel leaking problem:

1. A drop in idle rpm
2. A drop in gas milleage
3. A drop of power at high rpm.

At the beginning, the leak may be too slight to be spotted. But my freind's 04 SV also got the same problem so I think I should highlight this to all 03+ SV owner on this board. It takes very little time to check as you just have to take off the Air box. It can be done in less than 15mins.

For peace of mind, I would suggest to replace the hose clamps with screw type anyway. No matter it is leaking or not.
