Mystery Fuel Leak
About three weeks ago, I had the bike apart, while apart I changed the fuel filter. Bike has run fine since. This morning on my way to work I smell gas. When I get to work and get in the office, my right boot and pant leg smell like gas. Bottom line, I take off two hours from work, get home, take apart right side, and cannot find anything leaking (It did not have the strong gas odor as it did this morning). Started it up, ran up to 3k rpm, move the fuel hoses every which way, fans kicked on, and no leaks. I did tightened the big cap nut some and gave two hose clamps extra tightness. When I did change the fuel filter I changed the cap nut washer.

Possibilities - Since the bike only sat for two days. Is it possible that due to the cold weather (40 degrees in the garage), that fuel could have leaked from the cap nut?
I am going to button it up and see what happens tomorrow morning.
Any suggestions appreciated!
