Can someone give me an idea of what I'll be seeing tonight. Thanks.
I assume you are talking about the crank cover, which is on the right side.
If so, you probably blew one of the quick disconnects for the tank. There was a service bulletin on this, and the dealers replace the disconnects, or the "O" rings in them. These are located right over the crank cover, on the right side of the bike. Not a biggie, but be glad it happened in your garage, and not on the road.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
