Not POOG'S

My bike developed a slight miss Wednesday so I figured I would change the plugs this weekend and see if that helped. Heading to work yesterday it died on me. I had just filled up so that isn't the problem. I can smell gas once in a while when it cranks over but refuses to start, Pulled a plug wire to check for spark and got zapped, lol.
Any suggestions on where to start?

Thanks, Randy

Ok, Finally had time to check my bike and I feel like a huge bag of DUHHHHH.
The vacuum line had come off of the petcock. It seems that whenever something happens when we are riding we have a tendency to over think the problem. If I hadn't been so worried about getting to work on time I probably would have noticed the hose being off.
Oh well, the hose is on and the bike runs like it should.

True words for sure. When we're in panic mode it's even worse ya know? Glad you got it all set for no cash out of pocket.
