Fuel leakage from shutoff valve

This morning I started my bike for the ride into work. Fuel started pouring out from where the cutoff valve is. It looks like a split in the fuel line and only leaks when bike is running. Does any one know what size the fuel line is?

Thanks

I fixed the leak today. It was really pretty simple. It was the length of fuel line to the shutoff valve. Somehow it had slipped off a little.I just reattached the fuel line an added a hose clamp then went on a short ride.

Thanks for the help
