Gas Tank Neck Peeling

I was wondering if anybody noticed pealing paint around the top of the gas tank neck on their 900? I noticed a chip that came off the other day and now I noticed it is peeling all around the front of the filler neck.

Just curious.

No, but I've been concerned enough about just that issue that I always ensure I have a paper towel w/ me when gassing up in case a drop or two gets away from me while inserting and removing the nozzle.

I've been very careful, yet the paint is peeling off all around the outer neck.

Did you buy the bike new?

This usually happens after a tank has been repainted. There is usually a tape line around the filler neck that the gas seeps under and acts like a solvent causing the second paint job to fail.

Just curious.

Yes Dino570, the bike was purchased new in January 2010. The owner of the dealership is on a ride in Alaska until Aug 29th. I'll see what he has to say about it when he returns.

Thanks
