Angry Gas leak!!!

My 09 cbr is leaking gas bad, and I can't seem to figure out from where. The bike has never been down and I started to notice the problem about a week ago after riding for about 5 miles. Any suggestions?

From your vague description and zero details I'd say start at the tank/fuel pump area and go from there. If it's a bad leak DO NOT START OR RIDE THE BIKE until it's fixed. You should be able to remove the tank cover, tip the tank up and find the culprit because it's all there.

It's a simple system (gas tank, fuel pump, fuel lines, injector rail), but you need to look around as there is no way anyone can help locate something that's visual from long distance.

I would agree. Be careful when pulling up the gas tank as there are 3 hoses and 2 electrical connectors on the bottom. You don't want to accidentally pull off one of the hoses by accident during the removal and think that you have found your problem when you actually have not.
