    Sits totally flush on my roller , you need a mod with adjustable centre screw. Sigelei 510s are never deep enough

    I've got a Roller and a Dingo and I prefer my daddy Kayfun on a dingo, I just think the lines look better. Remember though that you need to get the 'flush' head and make sure you take the o ring out - it'll then lie perfectly flat.

    I had the satin finish to match my KFL but then changed my mind...
    only took an hour or so watching daytime tv with a tube of Autosol :)

    Right I think I've got it now. The extra tightening helped but I was still getting the odd damp bottom. Then I tried drying the fill screw (I didn't want to do both at the same time so I knew what fixes it). This seems to have done it. For some reason it seems to make a better seal if its dry.

    If it suddenly starts up again ill be going down to b&q, but I really wanted to find the root of this. Whilst not being top end price, it's still expencive enough to not do this :)

    So you're saying if it's wet it seeps?

    What's probably happening then is that the screw threads are kind of wicking e-liquid down the thread very slowly. If the threads are dry (or ptfed) then there is no path for the e-liquid to follow as either tape or an air bubble is blocking the clear path for the liquid to follow.

    If that's the case then some kind of 'squishy' screw ought to solve it. Or a squishy 'tip' delrin? viton? at the top of the screw that would expand a little after it's screwed in would solve it. As would an o-ring set into the top of the screw threads to seal the fill hole properly when it's screwed in.
