Awe, the weekly pandemic....happens to one person, so now everyone has to check their gas caps....last week it was the clutch bolt thingie, what will next week bring....by the way, did you do any mods to your cap prior to it blowing up? Was it even in the opening properly? Perhaps it was pilot error? Just asken, no insults intended....just never ever heard of this happening.
Jona,no disrespect intended at all but your mistaken on the fuel cap comming appart issue.
Iv'e been a member here in RSC for over 2yrs and have seen quite a few fellow RSC members posting here in RSC over that past 2+yrs that their fuel caps fell appart due to the small philips head screws comming loose that hold it together,not just 1 , 2,3 people.
And i dont think anyone else or myself was trying to start a false epidemic here at all,i was just stating the facts i have seen 1st hand posted in RSC by our fellow RSC members that have had 1st hand experience's with thier fuel caps falling appart due to vibration making the screws fall out which is a real issue with some of these bikes, but not all R*'s.
Same goes for all the other issues with our R*'s that i reffered in my prior post in this thread that plenty of other RSC memebrs have also had issues with over the yrs too.
I really like and respect my R* for what it is esp for all you get for the money vs Harley but the truth is the r* has some issues with in some cases inferior parts that fail way too early along with issues due to weak poorly designed parts too which unfortunately is the truth.
