remove battery and squeeze the plastic boost hoses. If theres a hole or its not hard, good chance. Reclamp everything...
silencer box can leak if you backfire it or something the seals can blow out but they usually don't just die on their own.

well backfires love to blow the silencer box apart.

Battery acid tends to eat up everything down there. Best if it happens to remove all signs of acid/rust and respray/neutralize the rust.
The rats nest of wiring doesn't help much either.
