It's been between 90 and 100 degrees and Ive noticed when the tank is somewhat full ill get a few drops of gas coming out of the breather tube. I can see fumes coming out which I am assume is normal, but the drops of gas? Is that ok, or am I dealing with a potential hazard?

I know if I fill my tank to full I smell fuel every now and then. I had not checked the vent tube. After doing it twice I just fill the bike on its stand until outs close to full. Haven't had a problem since. It's probably fine.
Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!
This has happen to me. Just before parking/turning the bike off I had finished a hard pull to the red line in 1st,2nd,3rd. Right after the pull I was at my destination and turned the bike off. I was in a rush and did not let it run for a second. What happen was my pump was on full alert feeding the horses then after the pump got all this food ready they were gone(Bike was turned off). The left over fuel had go somewhere and that is why the tubes are there. In not I would have got back on a flooded bike.
If tank is full, and it is hot outside, it will leak. Mine does it all the time. If i fill up, and it's 90 or so outside, eat lunch somewhere while the bike is sitting in the sun on the hot asphalt I will come outside and she will be leaking gas a bit, and you can see the fumes. Once parked in the shade and bike cools down it won't do it. Chalk it up as Normal.
