When I take off the petrol tank and remove the hose from the quick release coupling, petrol keeps on running out of the coupling.
I had a couple of beers yesterday, but can't remember that this ever happened on any of my other bikes.  "Left-overs" from the tube yes, but not from the coupling?!
Any suggestions to what's wrong, - me or the pump assembly? Shocked

did you unplug the fuel pump while the engine was running? this will get the residual fuel out of the lines and depressurize them

Yes and no. I first unplug the pump, then start it. It's easier, I find.
However, I didn't let the engine run until it stopped by it self, maybe that's why... Embarassed
