Sucking and squeaking sound

Hey Guys,

Not sure where to put this question, so into the general pile it goes. As I'm riding into work today, there comes a loud squeaking sucking sound from around the gas tank. I've got full fuel and coolant, so I'm not sure what else to check to diagnose the issue. It went away when I came to a light, but started again when I started driving.

Thanks,
Matt

Sounds like the tank is having trouble venting. Put some newspaper on the ground behind the bike and shoot carb cleaner down the tank vent and spray until the stuff coming out is clear.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
