Carlock Gas Cap Mod *WARNING!

*EDIT: Since having the gas cap and using the bike for a a few hundred miles, it has developed a venting issue in the gas tank. See the thread here: http://www.yamahastarstryker.com/index.php/topic,7757.msg76331.html#msg76331 . To fix the problem, I had to remove the setup and revert to the OEM gas cap. Since reverting, the gas leak has gone away. You may have better luck, but by proceeding the same may happen to you.

This is a screw on Roland Sands cap. It actually doesn't lock anymore as a result, but for now that's something I'm okay living with. So far with 53 miles all highway at 80+mph, there doesn't seem to be any venting issues. So far so good!

Re: Carlock Gas Cap Mod

looks good! So Did you find the Marine JB Weld? I bet your install went a little easier than mine because it was about 2 in the morning when I put the epoxy on that insert and installed it in the tank but I wanted to get it done because I knew it had to cure overnight and then I found out the hard way the next morning that the Low and Mean octagon gas tank accent dose not fit over the insert! I forgot to mention that to you but it looks like you remembered.
