Pissed Performace issues-gas cap

Short stuff bought her NOS 2008 230L so she could maintain her 2 wheel skills. Shortly after bringing it home, we noticed the bike was boggy and gutless at times. The bike was in the dealers for 2 months while they " diagnosed" our imaginary problem. Honda Corp. determined the "environmentally responsible low emissions" gas cap may be not allowing enough air into the tank as the gas was consumed. The gas cap was changed out ( back ordered 4 weeks) and we brought it home yesterday. It starts immediately now, I just spent 1/2 hour ripping around our trails and it didn't act up once.
Not sure if this is a common problem or not but thought I would share it and hopefully the solution.
