Default Re: Leaky gas cap

it's not the gasket that leaks, it's the air vent. when you fill it close to full or even if you only fill it half way, leaning the bike over of riding over rough ground gas splash's up into the holes for the air vent and leaks out. if you look at the cap you will see a hole outside of the gasket area, thats where the gas is coming from. i've been planing to seal that hole up with jb weld and drilling a hole in the top of the cap and running a vent hose off it like on dirt bikes. haven't tried it yet though. if anyone knows of better cap i'd like to try it. sucks getting gas on your nice new paint.
