    Between "Warn the neighbors" and "Fire engine" we should add "Check location of closest fire extinguisher". It doesn't take much of a fuel leak to cause problems. Ask me how I know... jw

    Thanks, Jeff! So you have more harrowing tales? I'll add that step to the list...

    It involved a Suzuki GS850 that I was attempting to start with starter fluid. It backfired throuhg the carb and the years of accumulated grease and the wire harness started burning.

    Young and dumb. I did have an extinguisher handy but it was a mess. I think Pat has one of the nice powder-less guys.

    I have plenty of fire extinguishers. One by the garage front door, one at the garage back door, one in the car, and one in the kitchen. I think we'll be fine.
