Hi, my Husbands 2006 Vulcan Nomad has a bit of an issue with the gas cap. It seem to leak around the cap after he fuels up and goes down a highway stretch. The gas streams down the tank.
He had a 2005 Nomad 1600 until he got rear-ended in June and the bike was a write off. He was OK!!
. Anyway he used to be able to fill up the '05 to within 1/2 inch from the top and never a prob. Now with the '06 he can't fill it above the main lower hole or is seeps out, hence his gas mileage is much less because this accounts to about a liter or more less gas he can put in.
We tried a few different rubber seals/gaskets around the inner cap, but they didn't help at all or made it worse. Has anyone has this problem with 2006's in particular??? Thanks. (Meantime...we will search...)
