View Full Version : Gas Tank Kink

I looked at my girl the other day and I noticed that the tank had a large kink on the left side. I opened the filler cap and a large rush of air ran into the tank. I have seen this before when refueling but did not think anything was awry. Is this normal or is there a breather valve that is not working properly. Also the Kink is still maring her beauty!

It's a faulty breather which is part of the tank. It is a warranty job. Go to your dealer and get the tank replaced. PITA I know. And it has happened on a couple of bikes on these forums.

My tank has started leaking fuel out the vent tube when the tank is close to full and it's hot outside. Is this related to the same venting problem? When I open the fuel cap it sounds like it's under pressure.
