Dropped my Gas Cap

Hi all. Dropped my Gas Cap last week. Hit concrete. Its not pretty. Dealer went to order me a new one. Came in today. Unfortunately, It comes with a New Ignition Lock Cylinder/Switch. And a New Key Code. Now I need to pull the Handle Bar and Upper Steering Head off to replace. I have installed Handle Bars on new bikes. Never had the Upper Steering Head off. Also need to get underneath the Gas Tank to access the connector. I'd like to do it myself. Need to find another set of hands. Dealer told me roughly $150 for the Labor. Need to run the gas tank down a bit first.

makes me wonder, if there is a generic key locking gas cap to replace the stock H-D gas cap? i know for a fact that Stant made one intended for cars but fit on V-Rods.

The New Lockset (Gas Cap and Ignition) cost me about $32 with Tax.


My Main concern is, I May need an extra set of hands. My work schedule makes it hard to find someone dependable. My Father rounded off the 46mm Clutch Carrier Nut on the Majesty. He was using the right size wrench.

I attempted to do it this morning. Gave up. Just put it back together. I'll have my dealer do it next week. Warning: The Fuel Pump Connector is easy to Unplug. Had to lift the tank and push it with my finger.

Seems to me like there's gotta be something after market that would fit

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

Wouldn't it be easier to just carry two keys?

Tonight I was Thinking about it. To get the Tank off you need to cut one of the Crimp Clamps on the Crossover Tube. I need to get one from the dealer. Then once the Tank is off, I can lay the Handle Bar on top of the Frame.


I can crimp the new clamp on with a CV Boot plier. Its a little larger than the clamp, But looks like it should work. Put about 136 Miles on the tank, Even when I lost some fuel at Quick Disconnect, The Low Fuel Light is still off.

Our Gas Cap is a Locking unit. Most Harleys Thread in. Thanks anyway Tonydl


Stopped at the "Chapel" tonight. Bought a pair of Crimp Clamps for the Crossover Tube. Just under $3 with Tax. I am going to try it again next week.
