I broke down and bought a Kolpin 4 gal. I had read the complaints about leaks but the price was so good I decided to give it a try. When I filled it I thought 4 gallons was going to be to full so I put in about 3 3/4 gal and tightened it up. I decided to put it on the front rack of my daughters magnum 325. when I layed it doun and started strapping it doun I noticed it leaked. After I blessed it and my own stupidity for buying it I unstrapped it and took the cap off and reinstalled it as carefully as I could so that everything looked like it was lined up and straight and I honked doun on it as tight as I could and when I layed it on the rack again it didn't leak. We did a 140 mile ride and it never did leak. My daughter ended up rolling her machine (shes OK) and the can tore loose of the stupid Velcro straps they supply to hold it doun but it never leaked. It was a good 20 feet from the machine when I found it. even found all the stupid Velcro straps in the weeds. If it wasn't a fluke and I can get it to seal like that every time I will be happy. Looks like I'm going to have to buy the twist locks for it though. But that is going to have to wait until after I put her Magnum back together.
