Fuel Tank

Hey guys... the last few times i have filled my bike i have noticed that either i have a problem getting the cap open, or there is so much pressure behind it that it practically blows the cap open..im pretty sure its because of the climate changes here in iowa but im kind of worried that if i fill it up when its warm then it gets cold out i can barrrrely get my gas cap open, almost feels like im going to break the key off..is there some kind of breather or somethin thats supposed to relieve this pressure or do i just need to deal with it..thanks

yea already do.... it feels like there is a really strong vacuum sometimes... like as i pull up on the cap there is a rush of air into the tank then it pops right open.

check to make sure your vent hoses aren't plugged up. they run down by the kick stand.

I dont think they are plugged up but they could maybe be pinched because i have had that damn fuel tank on and off about 6 times in the last month because a faulty power commander
