I mentioned this once before on here and really didnt get the problem fixed so I am trying again.
I have a 2006 1300C that caught fire on the right side from the airbox and carb and burned the right side of the gas tank.
I slowly started fixing the bike up again.
When I went to the gas station to fill it up, fuel started pouring out the vent under the right side of the gas tank.
I am assuming that the tube inside (If there is one) melted during the fire and now fuel runs out the vent hole.
Is there any way to fix it? Are there any vented gas caps for this bike?
Thanks everyone

Did you remove the T connection on that line?

That vent must have a hose attached to it that runs down to the bottom of the bike. Along this run of vent hose, there is a t-connection and the spur off the main line goes a few inches and terminates in an open hose. This open spur is the anti-siphon feature on this vent hose.
