Petrol tank filler cap

Postby geoff_52 » Tue Jun 07, 2022 12:08 am

Ok guys this is the second fuel cap Iv'e had on my Cyclone, the round black plastic piece on the underside of the cap is just not up to the job, the twist and release mechanism keeps ripping out the hole so you cant remove the cap, those who it has happened too will know what I mean, the complete cap and mounting kit is rather a lot of money so is there another type of cap which can be fitted to the tank with a little mod, your thoughts please
