On my first few rides I noticed my fuel tank vent hose kept coming out of the neck and spewing fuel all over the tank. The valve arrow points toward the tank. I switched the hose end for end and the arrow now points away from the tank. Anyone had this problem or forsee any difficulties I might encounter?

I removed my vent valve completely and I have no problem.

Hey TFouty! If you want to keep a valve on your vent hose, I got a brass swivel valve from Moose ($6) and a new blue vent hose ($2). It looks very trick :) with no leaking and your hose won't twist when you remove you gas cap :D.
