My tank had to be replaced once because the place where the fuel pump mounts warped, started leaking fuel.
Last night my low fuel light came on, right about the time I was going to park my bike. And I started to wonder if heat soak might not be a good idea on thermal setting nylon that already has a history of warping.
So I went and filled the bike up, Something I might pay more attention to from now on.
And don't later model bikes have vented side covers to cool that same area?
