    My fuel line popped off

    Last week I was parking next to the kerb and my motor cut out.  Went I went to start it again fuel spurted out all over the road  :003:

    The connector had come off the tank spigot.  It looked ok so I stuck it back on & its been fine since, though I have put a cable tie around it to help it stay there!

    Funny thing is its been over two years since it was last off when I did the last major service

    Anyone have any ideas why this should suddenly happen seemingly out of the blue?
    Triumph Centrestand & 3 box panniers.  TOR, dogbone out, Arrow race tune.  GIPro gear indicator.  SWMotech light mount with 3500 Komys.  SWMotech chainguard. Nitron R1.  Hand me down pointy indicators off son's Street Triple.

    The fuel line connector has a latch which must have been left unlocked after tank removal
