On a trip to the Chicken Rally in Huntsville, AL this past May, I had a tank collapse because of a pinched vent line to the canister. About a month after that was repaired, the gas guage started acting up again. On getting back home after one such episode after riding in the rain, I blew air thru the vent hose under the seat toward the canister, and water came out the canister. I removed the canister, and put it in the sun to try to dry it out. After sitting in the sun for most of the day, I again blew air in it and still had moisture coming out. I reassembled the bike without the canister, and have not had any more fuel gauge problems.
