I have just received my tank back after having it repainted due to severe bubbling of the paint.
It seemed that petrol had got between the tank and the paint. I have a new gasket to go under the petrol cap.
My question is, should I put anything on the rubber gasket to form some kind of seal. I'm thinking silicon but I am not sure if its petrol resistant. I do not want this problem to reoccur on the beautiful new paint job. Thanks.

Put it on dry and make sure to align the drain holes.

The caps on my bricks dribble gas all over the place when I open them to refuel.  I would advise carrying a rag in the tail cowl for wiping up the gas that gets in that area around the cap. 

Also, I found it's a good idea to not use the side stand with a totally full tank, especially if parking in the sun.
