    what am I missing here?

    Annie - you are right. I can get mine so full that when I stand it up I get a leak.

    Tex - are you filling at one of those pumps that has a ring bellows that has to be depressed before gas will come out?

    I fill until the gas just begins to fill the neck.... I am going slow with the gas by this point.... and then I stop. I never have any kind of leak...but I can imagine if I filled it to the TOP of the neck it might do.

    you mean you actually have to put the bike on the center stand to completely fill the tank?

    isn't the filler cap on the side opposite of the side stand?



    Couldn't put "fail" across Lolo's picture, but she did come in 4th in the 100 m hurdles - still one heck of an effort.

    No center stand, some people sit on the bike while filling!!!!



    Gas cap is located on side opposite the side stand.
    To maximize filling you slowly fill it up by stopping the process till the gas level drops and then fill it a bit more.

    there is a center stand available, though, isn't there?

    I've gotten spoiled that way; it makes it easier to pull off the wheels to get the tires changed.
