Anyone know of an aftermarket fuel cap that vents like the stock one. Not interested in loosening my cap all the time to equalize the pressure. :dunno suggestions... pics?

I have Vortex gas caps on all of my bikes, and yeah, I used to have to vent the when it was hot. (Note: Canada doesn't get hot Martin! :) ) But then I found out that if you remove the little ball in the base, it vents just fine. Or at least enough so that I don't have to lossen up the cap anymore.

I just put a Lightech gas cap on my R1. I was unaware that this was an issue; when does it become an issue and what is the problem? Vapor lock? Thanks, Joel
