nop i kept the cap closed until i had the nozzle in my other hand, opened the cap and poured gas in...
i was in the rain for an hour and a half yesterday, double my normal riding time. It sucked. I am going to be taking a look at both my spark plug and my air filter today. I tried starting her this morning and she started fine right away then 20 seconds later she died right down idling at 1000 rpms with the choke all the way closed...should have been revving to about 3 grand at the time...then she died...tried again, same effect...I did fill up at a speedway. It didnt rain alot more after i got home, i had a cover on her so i doubt the air filter got to breathe to well to release any water in her. thanks everyone for your help. if you can think of anything else let me know
I have not called the gas station yet. i am doing that when i get out of work. Thanks for the tip about the cloth. prolly wouldn't have crossed my mind.
fixed! thanks guys it was water in the spark plug boot.
