Traveling from Dublin Ga. to Aster Fl. for 1 day of fishing. 6 hours from home
Just turned onto state road 40. Smelt gas. Looked down and right foot and leg was soaked. Fuel was poring out to the rt fairing area. "panic set in." I could not pull over because of a low, and steep shoulder. So, I stuck my right leg straight out to get it out of the stream of gas, and trudged on.
BTW "you loose all style points" while passing the harley guys in that configuration.
Anyway, rode like that for 10 minutes until I could find a gas station. I figured if it didnt catch on fire in the first few minutes it might not
Made it to Aster without turning into a flame-ball. Worked on the damn motorcycle while my buddies fished, drank beer, and chasended me with comments, like "should of baught a harley etc." "All in fun." Only had the tool-kit.
Pulled the rt side panel off and found a cracked "qd, snap together, connector just below the fuel tank." I removed it and installed a hose to hose barb from NAPA.
Worked good home, but now what?
