The tank is vented to atmosphere, it is not a pressurized system.

I don't know what your problem was/is. Don't think anything was solved, per se'. Maybe not a problem that will surface again. I donno. Keep an eye on things.....watching for any other gremlins to appear as clues.

You don't need to put your bike on the center stand to refuel. In fact, sidestand is better to gain proper fill volume (hold more). I always topmine off to the max (brim) with no problems.
