Just Noticing Fuel dripping down the front cylinder cover. The cover seems brittle or the chrome finish is brittle so guessing its been going on for a while.

Rides fine - came to my attention riding and hearing a pop / felt pressure on shifting hand. similar sensation to lighter blowing up in your pocket from friction.
Suspect fuel dripped on something hit and ignited.

Petcock seems ok - turned to off position and took about minute for all the fuel to idle out and engine to die.

Did overfill the tank before this shenanigans began. Thought it might be overflow but have rode 50 miles and fuel continues to leak.

Gas drips onto front cylinder cover and off to left side.

Any ideas?

Fuel line cracked going from the tank to the carbs. It should only do it when the key is on, it does have an electric fuel pump in the tank I believe.
