That's actually a good question.  I don't know what the cap size is, but when I had the stock tank, I don't recall my vent ever leaking, so you might see if there is a problem there.  Also, if I remember right the cap from my sportsman and scrambler 500 fit the outlaw, so maybe all the Polaris caps interchange.  So maybe see if they make a vented cap for them (maybe the snowmobiles are the same?).  Good luck.

Most Polaris ATV caps interchange. On the newer Brigs Intek
motors, they have a cap that matches right up and with vent.
Problem is, they spit gas from abuse. I suppose there just
meant for cutting grass and not what we put our bikes thru.
I'd check the vent. It is plastic and could be cracked. Screw
in a brass fitting, make sure your vent tube has a good high
arc to it, and long enough to run down to the bottom of the
frame. Those small vents can be found cheaply at pet stores
that deal with aquariums.

I just did some checking, and ebay lists several vented caps that are real purdy for the predators... so I'd guess that work for you.
