I took a bit of fuel line and cut it unto a strip about a 1/4" by 1/4" and stuffed it beneath the gas cap rubber much like the rubber o ring.  Not a drip since.

And as stated before never fill the tank or store the bike on the sidestand. Every drop spilled is money not ridden and vicious looks from greenlings.

I find it inconvenient and a bit absurd not to fill the tank to the brim. What is that place otherwise for but to fuel more miles? Filling the tank when on the side stand will take 100 kms from your range, that hurts.
