ok so someone with a second gen needs to tell me if im crazy or if its the bike. when i put my helmet on my tank for an longer than 1 min. and then put my helmet on, it smell like gas. so now would the seal be going back or is there a purge im missing, cause i've heard it do it before. also if it is the seal, just wanted to know if there was a recall on it or not.


thanx , kris
