So bought a 2015 cbr500r and want to change the gas cap, but after ordering, gas cap comes from Honda with out a rubber gasket and Honda says the gasket doesn't exist?

Anyone else have a 2015 with a rubber gasket on it?

From what I can tell the gasket stops water from getting under the cap into the tank.

Found it on ebay its aftermarket, so I guess the gascap I have is aftermarket.

My only question is will water get into the tank thru the oem cap, because there's a hole right by where the gascap seals on the tank.

I just caulked mine with silicone sealant. I was rushing and didn't care about aesthetics but as long as it works and it DOES. i replaced my gas cap as well. not the same year but same concept.
