Did they put their junior engineers on designing the gas tank and fuel spout. I've owned a lot of bikes over the year and I've never had a bike that is so difficult to fuel.
Has anybody removed the gas cap assembly and turned it (right now the caps opens rearward) so that it opens forward and to the left?? it sure seems that would make for easier refueling.
You can't. Only a couple (3 I think) of those bolts are real. The others are appearance only. But, I've heard a lot of grumbling about it and luckily I read about it before I had to fill mine up. I stand on the right with the bars turned full left. Hold the nozzle straight up with the tip pointed towards the right rear of the tank. Never spilled a drop and can fill at full pressure until I see the bubbles then I top it off and it's done. Hope this helps.
