Exclamation Gas Tank Pressure

Lately I have noticed a strange hiss coming from my gas tank. This has happened on three occasions. All, after the bike has been turned off for a few hours. (I get to work at 6 a.m., when I went out for a smoke break at 10 a.m. I heard my gas tank letting out pressure)


I have never had a bike do this before. Is this natural???

Yes it's normal. Simply the tank venting.

Yes it's totally normal! My old KLR 650 used to "whistle
"when venting!

It's the sound of your mother dying a little inside, thinking of you riding a motorcycle!

I'm calm like a bomb!
