Restoring an old Vulcan 1500 nomad and the gas cap leaks. I looked up the part and doesn't like you can get just the seal, you have to buy the entire cap assembly. Anyone know if you need to re-key it? Or can you use your old lock. Can't really tell from looking at the cap or the diagrams.

When does the cap leak? Only when full? And if yes only when full does it run down the tank when you are riding? My 1500 classic started leaking when full and running down the tank towards my pants. I took it apart and cut some of the spring coils off of the check valve spring. Tiny little spring inside the black part of the cap. It worked perfectly on the ride I just got back from and never leaked once.
