Bizarrness: water pools under fuel cap

On my '05. You know the little drain hole to the left of the filler neck? It ain't drainin'. When it rains water gets all pooled up in there. Luckily it doesn't go into the tank itself. I guess I have to plumb that hole, but I'm not sure how... where does it come out at?

Doesn't sound like anything a little draino can't fix

You've likely got a plugged or pinched drain line - it's one of the ones that runs down next to the kickstand - try BIke Bandit and see if the assembly view has the routing on it

Could it become pinched from putting the lower back on in a way that traps the line? I bet that's what's happened. Thanks for the idea.

It a mud dobber, the little wasps that cake mud on the porch walls. My dads old goldwing had glowing headers because those little bastids packed the exhaust full of mud!!!

Bumping this thread, I haven't really resolved the problem. Can someone tell me which line is the drain for that hole next to the filler neck? The longest large one, the large one, or the small diameter one?

I take it this is with the fuel cover off... looks like it's one of the fat ones. Thanks for this.
