HAH! I guess I should have been a little more specific.

Welcome to the 4M, yes being more specific on an opening line in this forum about GAS is a good thing to explain thoroughly And I might add the door is still wide open for the explanation )
Be safe

I think I figured this out. I was replacing the spark plugs yesterday, and the little brass fitting that the fuel line goes on that comes out of the fuel valve on the gas tank, well it just fell out. I'm guessing it has been loose for quite a while. I tapped it back in by using a hammer with a small piece of wood over it (so I didn't dent it), and that seems to have taken care of it. I think I'll order a new fuel value assembly and replace it, I'm guessing it will come loose again over time.

Welcome to the forum 13F. As you can see, the people on here jumped on the band wagon and figured out your problem with gas . In the future if you have any other issues with your ride; ask and we'll jump in just as fast and get it done. Don't be shy to post often and even posting pics of your ride.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

A few things added and more stuff to follow
