Default Crap! Fuel line leak

so had to run over to our other office and i get out to my bike, turn the key, hit the starter button and no start. start smelling gas and there is a stream of gas running from under my tank.. without having any real tools with me, i can't see where its coming from but i suspect the fuel line has a hole in it..

gonna truck it home but does anyone know what size the fuel line is? I can't find it in the service manual, just "replace with authorized victor parts because the fuel line is subject to high pressures...." blah blah.

hoping that Autozone, Parts America, or a local Napa dealer has something because otherwise its going to be the weekend before she is up an running again.
Any help would be extremely appreciated!!

you got your jesus on the dashboard, the devil's under my hood. you're takin' down to legal, i'm pulling it up to no good.
god is your co-pilot, i let satan ride shotgun, you pay a toll to get to heaven, but on the road to hell there's none..... \m/ \m/

Most likely the hose from the tank came off. It is a little tricky to snap it on. Has the tank been off recently?

Not since the beginning of the season... but its definitely the fuel line leaking. we got under it a few minutes ago with a led lite scope for checking air lines and there is a perforation in the hose just after the connection to the tank...
guess i should have replaced it when i had the tank off in April and noticed they were looking a little weathered... apparently its a little more weathered than it appeared. lesson learned.

Typical parts store isn't going to have what you need. Either replace it with Vic part or find a place that sells AN fittings and hose and make your own line.
