Default Re: Leaky gas cap

I have this cap that leaked real bad, I drilled 8 holes to get the thing to stop leaking.

I first drilled two holes underneath the gasket, that did nothing. Then I drilled two more under the gasket...kinda helped.

So then I drilled two holes on the neck of the cap, that really helped but still would leak when I shake the tank a little. So I drilled two more a little lower on the neck and that stopped all the leaking

With the tank removed off the bike I can flip it upside down/upright and shake it like there is no tomorrow and not one drop of fuel.
