Sort of the same here, but in fairness I've had 12 years of practice with the 650 and less than a year (and probably fewer than 10 tanks of gas) with the 200. I'm sure there's a trick to it... one I haven't quite figured out yet.

To their credit, though, it's easy to top off the tank on the 200 without overfilling it or getting splashback. The 650 needs to be up on the centerstand and rocked back and forth gently to ensure a completely full tank; the 200 can be filled on the sidestand.

Not all who wander lack GPS.

No wonder my tank has never been full. So I just carry a 1 gal can o gas in a sidecase.

Common sense, the least common of the senses.

When I remove the fuel cap on my 650, I put it on top of the pump (with the key still inserted). Then I can't drive away without the cap.

The dashboard (especially if your gloves are already there, which will help keep it from sliding around) is the other good place to put it while fueling. And I also leave the key in the cap until I'm done.

I've always put mine on with the arrow pointing in, with two tangs it fits either way.

I have always left the key in the cap when filling and put it on the passenger seating area. Not going anywhere till its back on.
