Default 2006 VN 1500 gas cap leaking

My 06 1500 classic has started leaking gas from the tank gas cap area especially after fueling and hot weater.
I do not over fill the tank.
Trying to find the part # for the cap gasket......no luck so far.
Any suggestions would be great from other vulcan riders.

Yeah mine does that sometimes too.
I thought I must be filling her up too much.
Was going to try less gas, but it is frustrating that we have to fill up so often, I do try to get as much in the tank as I can

Mine had been doing that as well. I took the cap off and apart, cleaned it all up and reinstalled. That seemed to fix it for me, no parts. Might be worth a shot?

Mine was doing the same thing, I took it apart and found an "o" ring that wasn't completey in the groove. I put everything where it should be and that seemed to fix mine also.
