I do believe your fuel filler cap is installed backwards.

Hinge is front as it was when I got the bike. Like it has been on all bikes I have owned.

All your other bikes probably weren't bmw's.  The hinge on K bikes needs to be at the rear so that the cutout in the mounting flange is above the water drain hole.  The way your filler is installed, water will collect around the filler and work it's way into the tank to contaminate the fuel.

You are right, I was also missleaded by the previous owner(s) who had installed the cap backwards.

Yes, the filler cap was backwards. Just one more video, "executive summary".

Thanks for this update, mek. Your moto is sounding and looking good. It's beautiful over there.
