954 fuel gas cap tank Am I missing something?

Between the outer edge of the gas cap and the tank there is a gap that is open to the air. Rain can actually go in that gap and funnel down to the drain hole into the tank. I looked to see if there was a gasket missing but it seems there is not. The cap and the bolts are all there is to it. Is it broken? Can I fix it or do I have to buy a new cap ?

that hole goes through the tank and down to the tube near the kickstand. it does not let rain water into the gas tank.

The drain runs through the tank and vents to the ground.

Thanks. So that is not open to the fuel. Also, don't spill any fuel when you fill you tank. I went and looked and saw it in about 1 sec. I am not as dumb as I appear to be most of the time. And the fact that two of the dummy screws are missing means nothing. Good.

Don't go filling it up right to the neck either. Best to stop an inch or two below.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
