Don't forget to grease your nipples boys! ya don't have to do it after every ride, but it doesn't hurt to grease your a-arm bearings frequently... especially if you pressure wash!

And don't forget to stand your quad up and grease the rear swingarm and linkage too! cheap insurance.

Is the fuel coming out of the breather tube or is it coming out between the actual threads? It shouldnt really leak out excessively unless the cap or the fuel tank neck threads are stripped???

i think its the threads. i tried the ol wheelie into the bed of the truck to get it on its back, and it pours out when vertical. had to get the ramps out instead. which was weird cuz when i launch it ill get it pretty straight up and down sometimes and nothing happens then....

lol. maybe when your straight up and down launching it ya got more things going through your head than losing gas lol. . . ya it sounds like the threads may be a little stripped. I've seen it happen on a few different bikes when the cap is tightened too tight. alot of the time the threads on the cap strip out before the gas tank neck threads so you would just have to replace the cap instead of the whole tank.
