The weather in North Carolina has been fantastic the last few days so I have been riding. That’s the good news. The bad news is that gasoline is still leaking out around the filler cap. I am not overfilling. I stop pumping before gas reaches the “collar” under the cap. After a ride I can open the cap and see gas in the second “well” and gas is dripping out of the overflow hose (and staining the engine case). I rode over to the dealership yesterday and talked to the service manager. He tells me that he has a new cap on order . . . but I don’t think the cap is the problem. The dealer removed the charcoal canister before I picked up the bike. Could that be the problem?

Other news:

(1) I bought a “comfort seat”. Yesterday was the first time that I have had to try it out. It's VERY comfortable and as an extra, added bonus, it looks good. The vinyl covering is two-tone gray and black.

(2) The two-into-two Termi’s are still on backorder. I think I’ve talked myself to running without baffles.

(3) I found a black and silver Vanson jacket that looks great with the bike. (Damn, I sound like my wife. “Do these shoes look good with my dress?”) It had been on the rack for a long time so they gave me a good price.

As you ride more keep an eye on your tank and see if gas is leaking!

Dfox - It was a dealer suggestion.

Paint - I'm very glad to hear that yours does not leak - gives me hope that there is a fix - and thanks for the link to the parts catalogue. I checked it out and you might be right. It might be a bad "0" ring.

Thanks, but I've already ordered the two-into-two system from my local dealer. (They didn't ask for a deposit and I don't want to stick them with something they might not be able to sell right away.) They're pretty good guys and they gave me a good price . . . so this time I will stick with them.

However, I have been visiting your site and I really like what I see. I've already got your site bookmarked! (In fact I gave you guys a plug the other day. I recommended your website to someone who was looking for a Ducati jacket!)

I'm sure I will be buying from you in the near future.
