Normal?

I meant to post this a few days ago. When I was changing out my fuel cap, I noticed this when I was feeding the breather tube. The inside of the actual fuel tank is clean as a whistle...just noticed this. Just wondering if its normal for this to build up in this particular spot.



and I cleaned up everything I could with a damp rag thats on the top. The photo is pre clean.

That is pretty normal. Any moisture or spilled fuel goes there, not abnormal for the leftovers to hangout there.

At least in my experience.

Used to out premium 100% gasoline in it until it came out they were lying about it. Now I put premium Shell gasoline with 10% ethanol. Literally don't have a place in town that is 100% gasoline anymore.

I dropped the bike back in January and gas came out through through the bleeder hose, that's about it.
