I know big twins are prone to vibrating nuts and bolts loose but a gas cap???
I couldn't believe it today when my gas cap just flew off and blew apart into about 5 different pieces!
Fortunately I was just accelerating away from a stop light so I wasn't going more than about 20mph, but the only thing I can determine are the two screws that hold the who assembly together, came loose and dropped inside the tank, then the rest of it just flew off!
I was fortunate that I found the pieces I did, since they were scattered all over the intersection in traffic, but there still seems to be a couple missing and I haven't had a chance to fish around inside the gas tank yet. I have a sinking feeling I'm not going to find all the parts and since the stealer only sells the unit as a whole for $100, I'm wondering what my options are. Does anyone know of any other caps that will fit the R* that are less expensive? I don't really care if it locks or not. ...Or maybe someone who would sell a used one? I'm sure I can still use the tumbler from mine.
