A replacement gasket kit 16119062461 may go a long way in remedying your issue although they are getting very hard to find. I am in Canada and had to order one from Hap's Cycle in Sarasota, Florida.

I plan on getting the rubber ring around the cap mount, but from what I've read the 85 push button caps are notorious for leaking and right now a splitting headache from all the fumes.

hi to the k100 group after a very long time! my 86krs has the same prob with fumes coming out of the filler cap and is a major deterrent to riding. Kyle mb did the replacement kit solve your issue ? does everything in the repair kit get used or does it vary by model, it looks like there is a seal in the kit my cap doesn't have ( looks as it goes around the lock area) ? any trick to dissamembling the part with the wide thin seal ,gently pry ?

The replacement kit will help if your seals are bad. In my case I ended up getting a new gas cap.
I kept my original lock so all the keys would still be the same and somehow gas occasionally seeps from the key hole. Not sure how to fix that. So seals there.
