gas cap? NOT A CHROMING QUESTION!!!

i have a 2005 r1 with 25 000KM on it and i was wondering if it is normal that water is sipping into the gas tank.....looks like the seal is finished.....also i was wondering if it possible to change the seal only or do i have to change the whole gas cap. thanks

p.s.: i did use the search!!!!

Are you sure it isn't gas? If your breather line is pinched it is possible that gas is coming up thru the breather hole becuase of back pressure...

Check your breather tube...runs down the side of your bike, comes out near your left foot....

I was looking at the Parts Fish, and it looks like the Seal is only sold w/ the Cap...

Sucks...
