Anyone else having oil leakage around the A65/50 oil tank filler cap? Seems like my cap is closing good, it has a spring push-back feel to it. I added the fiber washer 67-0042 but after riding there’s a fair amount of oil that finds its way past the cap and down the side of the tank. It feeels like it’s on there pretty tight.

Check the breather tube is clear by blowing back through it ( yum)
All sorts of creepy crawlies seem to like to crawl up there then either make a nest or die which blocks off the breather so hot air has no where to go but past the cap .
