Gasoline leaks can pop up unexpectedly and be pretty dangerous.

Pics from Tuesday: after putting the carburetor back in after having received it back from the shop where it was re-jetted, my friend and I thought we connected all the fuel lines correctly.

We even started the bike in the garage and let it run for five minutes. It ran fine.
At the end of that 5 min. I revv'd the throttle a few times and it sounded good.

Then we shut it down we were in the garage with it for another five minutes while we packed up our tools. Then we close the garage and left everything.

A dozen hours later I look in the garage because I smell gasoline in my front yard...

... and I see a big dark spot a wet spot, a puddle really, underneath my bike. That could've caused a flash-fire.
