Default Re: Leaky gas cap

I'm not familiar with dirt bike caps and the vent hose. Describe it. Is it just a few inches long so that rain doesn't come in... and then hangs over the side? That should be simple enough. As you say, a little dab of JB weld would seal up the existing vent hole and then drill a hole in the top of the cap for a small diameter hose... either with a threaded nipple or just stuck in the hole and dabbed with another bit of JB weld. Should work, but I'll wait to see other posts. Maybe somebody sells a real cap that works as it should. Wish there was a source for those old Honda moped caps. Fit tight, looked good and didn't leak at all.
