The same thing happened on my 1985 VT1100C once, I was out of town without tools, The Steeler charged me $110 to poke the seal back in and Un-kink the vent hose and refill the oil. Oh yea, and to wipe the tire off.
If I had a do over with the same situation I would just buy the tools needed.
I make sure to carry a basic tool kit+ when I go out of town now.
