Even with an over pressurized tank....ie... malfunctioning vent system..... it will NOT cause the tank to crack...... You would need to engage with pressures and vacuum numbers....far greater than what the bike would tolerate..... I really think bad casting is the issue here.... Mine is '09....HOT desert.... lots of uv..... not a thing... Just imho....

Thanks Erling!
Maybe they will have the difficulties ironed out in 2 years .... if not I wonder if the 2-year clock starts over when I get the replacement ... replaced ...

I'm going to check the pressure/vacuum valve my self, and confirm the canister is free-flowing ....
Then have a cold one and comtemplate my next move ...
