Leaking fuel

So I installed my new steering damper today and took the 954 out for a requisite spin. Riding along I can't help but smell gas, but the bike runs flawless. Upon returning home I find what appears to be the larger of two drain hoses leaking below the tank, actually a pretty good trickle. I replaced the line, but now it just leaks from below the bike. I stuck an allen wrench through the nipple up in to the tank and didn't find a check valve, so now I'm leaking from a line and don't even know it's original purpose. Any ideas?

Re: Leaking fuel

So I got around to pulling the tank today. Not a difficult task, but messy. Honda silver soldered or brazed two steel lines insided the tank. The larger of which simply drains the ring around the filler neck. Mine developed a leak about half way down; from the gunk that was at the exit I'll assume it was corrosion. I blocked off the drain tube and I'll just have to remember not to overfill.

Hope this helps someone in the future,
