sucking sound...

...while opening my gas cap. The vacuum is at it's worst after using up 6 gallons of gas and riding 240 miles. Is this normal or do I have some sort of fuel tank venting problem? My bike has not had a canisterectomy and runs fine between fill ups.

Check the tank vent hoses. My bet is one of them is plugged.


I have actually heard of an R1150R rider having the tank implode, sort of, from that. Made a nice dent in his tank.
