Default Fuel tank leak around fuel cap fix

Not really a fix but more of an adjustment.

If your Vulcan is leaking fuel around the fuel cap becuase the O ring in the cap is barely making contact with the mouth of the tank here is a simple solution. There is a small screw on the bottom of the fuel cap, tighten the screw up a little at a time until the fuel cap flips snuggly onto the fuel tank. By doing this you are compressing and spreading the O ring. This also keeps the tank pressurized alot better.

Remember not to over tighten the screw or you will strip the screw hole.
