so I loosen the gas cap when stopped and of course after a few rides I lost the gas cap.

ordered a new Acerbis aluminum gas cap from Just tanks in CA. got it over the weekend and it doesn't seem to fit my tank. I called and the guy tried a new one on a new tank and said it fits fine. I tried mine again this morning and it's close but just doesn't seem to fit...

did I get the wrong gas cap, or is there something wrong with my tank? the OE gas cap was a tight fit, but you could open and close it..

just trying to figure out if I got the wrong gas cap or if I should just force it or see if I need to trim some off the threads on the tank. I'd hate to screw up a $900 tank though!!!
Safari tanks are based in Australia, i guess you would need to order one from them direct. Also go by the name AV Aqualine.
Behind the buzzing blindfold of failure sits experience. thats why altzeimers people are always so cheerful.
