The manager at my dealership told me it is a problem with a clip that sits at the bottom of the pump. It holds a rubber grommet in place, but it is poorly designed and it sticks out just a little bit, the pump sits off to the side, so they are thinking that if you put the gas pump all the way in it is hitting that clip and bending it, which then damages the grommet; letting air in.

A new pump is supposedly being designed, so they same bad pump model has been put in my bike again.

All owners need to NOT put the gas pump all the way in. I am also concerned with this clip holding up on long rides.

Bad clip design. But redesigning the whole pump. :what?

Not a concern for my model.
But never did insert the nozzle all the way to begin with. Got tired of fighting the auto shutoff.
Just squeezed the lever gently to avoid splashing.

Thanks for the heads up for those it may affect.

I guess that is why I have not had the problem. I never shove the pump end into the gas tank.
