      Well priced keyless gas cap replacement
      by Scott F. on 08/08/12
      Pros: Bought this to replace the older style Vortex gas cap I had after I lost the cap at a track day. (Eeep!) The older cap had mangled threads and was really hard to tighten and even harder to get off. It also wasn't venting right. I was hesitant to buy another vortex cap because of this, but the price made it worth a shot compared to other options.

      The new cap works great. Very easy to get on and off. The locking tab is nice because you know exactly how much to tighten in. Threads are very smooth and the venting is working great. My old cap fly a few inches up into the air and spit fuel out at me when I would take it off on a hot day. No such issues with the new one. Installation was a incredibly easy.
      Cons: I thought this was a quarter-turn cap, but it is not. Reviewing the description it doesn't mention it anywhere, so it's my own fault. The fact that it's not quarter-turn is the only reason I didn't give it 5/5.
      Exactly what I needed
      by Aldo W. on 10/30/12
      Pros: Price, style and finish. It performs flawlessly and is easy to install.

      The Shipping by Solomotoparts was lightning fast. I told the UPS guy I wasn't expecting anything that day! lol
      Cons: Just one thing: I wish the cap was an Ebony black to exactly match my bike. Nonetheless it looks good.
