Had the tank off for some routine stuff clean airbox, filter, check the plugs etc. Went riding and when I got home the stink of gas about drove out of the garage. I checked for leaks in the lines, pinched vent hose, nothing. Any suggestions? Oh, the bike runs fine.

Did the petcock maybe loosen a little? Sometimes mine would get loose and you could smell the gas, but it wouldn't drip or anything.

Unsure which bike ur talking about. Anyway...
You prob. banged some cr*p loose in the tank, and I'd bet good moneya little piece of it is sitting atop your float needle. If you've exhausted the obvious solutions, pull the carbs, check the needle, & give those bad boys a good spraydown while they're out. Btw...handle the float needle tip carefully, that little piece of rubber is surprisingly fragile. Inspect em CAREFULLY b/c its even a little tiny piece of debris can compromise the seal
luck!

Got it! A hairline crack in the male fuel connector. Well off to the honda shop to see if they have anything that will fit. If not than I gotta go out to Winchester.

Got the parts sent to me in the mail for FREE! Same fittings they use on a Duc. so now my bike .005% Ducati

Winchester Motorsports is the best dealer ever. They've cut me a break too many times to count and if your thinking about a Duc. or Trumpet I highly recommand you check them out.
