This may be overly cautious of me but, if you are out riding (and stopping here and there) for the day with air temps in the 90's, wouldn't a black gas tank get wicked hot? South Florida sun doesn't play around. I've literally burned my back by leaning against a black pickup with my shirt off during the summer. I just don't like the idea of my fuel being 100 and whatever degrees. Your thoughts?
If your cap is vented properly, not a problem. Take a look around. How many motorcycles have black tanks? If not most, at least a large proportion...and you don't see them exploding on hot days. In fact, I've never heard of one case. Ride on.
All the guys here got it right,no worries.I rode my bike all summer long under the california sun temps ranging from 90 to 118 never had any trouble,also I store my bike out side,and rarely does it see any shade.An otherwords ride on brotha.Randy
