Fuel cap issues
« on: December 23, 2018, 12:10:38 PM »

So my key wouldn't even go all the way into my fuel cap, let alone turn it, so I decided to take it apart and see what was going on. Long story short, I need a new one. I'm trying to find the cap assembly with a key instead of getting a new ignition barrel as well. Anyone have any suggestions about what site to use, bearing in mind I'm based in Australia. Alternatively, if you know of some other fuel cap solution I'd be interested to hear it.

Enjoying the adventure of getting to know my new bike 😂

For $90!? Nope. Keeping this bike cheap. Anyone else got any thoughts? I might just try and see if I can find a lockable vented car petrol cap that'll fit, that or find someone willing to sell me just the fuel cap with a key.

So I've come up with an elegant(enough) solution to my fuel cap problem that was a hell of a lot cheaper than $90.



$16 bucks from supercheap auto, had to shave about 1mm from each side to get the fit but it's pretty damn perfect ;D

I hope it vents or you will be building some decent pressure in that tank.

So shiny!

You'll have to polish up the bike to suit!
