    or well chewed gum as a rough fix (it hardens In  petrol)

    Be careful if if could drip on a hot exhaust

      Still  won't ignite  unless Source of ignition--burning wire, loose spark plug wire, etc.  Or drips into Outlet of pipe;  sparks, flame.  Most  fuel tanks,  even with wind, drip on forward ends of pipes. Evaporates Instantly.

    Stop it up with a sheet metal screw and rubber washer, the plaster over it with epoxy putty.

    Gum, duck tape, blu-tac, self-tapping screw, glue, silicon sealant.

      Will Silicone Hold? Glue? Maybe Gorilla water based. Not airplane glue, No..

    Call for a tow to the nearest garage.  It will be cheaper than a burnt vehicle.

      A $400 tow for a $400 motorcycle? Maybe Not. A brand new $23,000 Indian Chief, yes.

      20 miles from home--rather than pay $200 for a Mobile  wrench, belter to just cal motorcycle tower. Cheaper, too.
