GL1500 Gas Cap

Post by crowtoe » Sat Nov 11, 2017 2:02 pm



Just spent around $2,500 to get my Wing road worthy after sitting for 3 years. I'm in the hunt for a new OEM gas cap. Dealership wants 85 bucks but I think I can find one elsewhere cheaper. Does anyone have any sources? Thanks, and ride safe.

I guess I wonder whats wrong with the one you have ? People have soaked them in Seafoam and blown out the passageways to bring them back to life, if yours seems to be clogged in either the pressure of vacuum mode. Otherwise Partzilla has them for a bit less.

Bluewater: Thanks for the link. Just to be safe, I'll be ordering a new one. Had an issue after I got the bike out of the shop with "whistling". Opened the cap and it quit. Dealership told me the cap probably needed replacing (more than likely it was just the seal). About a month later it quit on me out on the interstate, and I managed to nurse it to a gas station by constantly choking it so it would get fuel. Thinking it was "bad gas", I put about a gallon and a half of hi-test in it and it's managed to run about 350 miles since with no issues. I'll treat the old cap with Seafoam and keep it as a spare just in case.

Mikelens: I saw that too, thanks. Looking for new, not used.

Rubber side down, y'all!
