That combined with a hot header/cat could certainly do it. The thing is, when the bike is running, those small drips usually turn into a lot of gas, so I would think it would have been pretty obvious when stopped.

I hate that it happened to you though. Any plans for a rebuild?

Not really...

Ooh look...
