Drill "breather" hole in gas cap

Sloetwn Suv Stigmopeyass /

Riding around and a bit on a kitted V-1 and had the motor die at ,high rpm. Choke it and repeat. Cleaned carb extensively (dellorto) and then upgraded to 15.5 replacing the 14. For the record, I was wanting to upgrade before the vacuum lock.

Same problem.

After ruling out other possibilities, I did one of these one handed unscrew the gas gap while the motor is dying at 35 and damn it was a gas cap not venting. It started and ran fine until I either opened the throttle all the way or slowed down.

Question I have is this: can I drill a breather hole until I can get a $10 gas cap order placed?
