More info needed! Do you REALLY mean a fuel leak????? If so, then you need to sort it asap. It could be a leaking fuel hose or a seal around the fuel pump access port in the fuel tank. Start by looking at your year / model here. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/select ... series=K54 You can then work out where the leak might be coming from by lifting the tank and having a look.

Call your nearest BMW Motorrad Dealer with your frame number there were a couple of recalls for Fuel pump flanges

Thanks everybody it appears to be leaking when the ignition is turned on and/or when the engine is running.
Also when on the side stand petrol collects in the fin on top of the barrel where it meets the engine casing.
This bike has only done 1200 miles! I have contacted BMW and am waiting for a manager to ring me.
