Removing fuel tank 03 triple?

This has probably been asked before

but when taking off petrol tank on a 03 triple how do you stop the fuel coming out of the tank and pipes that connect it

I had an issue which I smelt petrol fumes after riding yesterday
And investigated n found that a worn o ring was leaking where the 2 connectors where on the tank
But on taking the top hose off it kept running from the hose
And when the lower hose was taken off it was running from the tank

is there a way to stop this
My previous fuel injection bike didn’t do this when hoses were taken of there was only a trickle

I have an 07 w/ plastic ends, was told the hose ends should stop the flow (they are the same on both ends). So I got another line, same thing, gas flows no matter what, very messy. You can see right through the hose/ends there is nothing in there to stop it.
