2006 Vulcan, gas

(hastily coppied from a Twitter convo)
Hope it's not related, but I pulled my fuel injectors to clean them, spilled a little bit of gas, and I thought "whatss the easiest way to lean this up....light it!" I took a lighter to it, it burned pretty good for a few seconds, then it went BANG. And it smoked for a few minuets. Including some from the valves (i had the cover off)

Now, the engine belows smoke, and it left a good size oil puddle as soon as I parked her.

So, what the neck did I do? And how do I fix her?

I'm not sure I understand completely what happened. Did you ignite spilled gas on top of the engine?

Hacked her up and took a look at her, that seems to be exactly what happened. Hopefully that's all.

OP, consider yourself lucky you didnt end up in the ICU burn unit of your local hospital.
