Gas cap lock

The gas cap lock really chaps my ass. Many of us did the fix on the LT where we didn't have to use the key.

Anybody have any ideas on how to get around this one and still get it to snap shut?

I gotta know - why does it bother you so much? Take the key outta the ignition, pop the cap, back into the ignition, hardly an inconvience.

I am multi tasking challenged.

Actually, the extra step(s) just downright bug me at a gas stop.

That's hard core man, right on. Bet you don't even take off your helmet and gloves and have your gas card chained to your wrist for easy access. So while I'm unlocking my gas cap you're already gone! (cuz you don't know me I mean no dis, just making a funny here)

Puhlease. This is a fun group, no dis taken!

When I'm running hard and beating feet, if I don't have to piss, I just gas and leave. Even if I have to run in, I leave my helmet and one glove on.

On the third tank I'll stop a few extra minutes, eat a couple of power bars and stretch a bit. That's usually about a 10-15 minute stop.

This is usually trying to get out of Texas, thru the southern end of New Mexico, Arizona, or just trying to get somewhere.

The longer you stay in the saddle, the less time you stay at a stop the better your average speed. I've actually run about 1500 miles with an average speed of 65 mph doing just that.

just a thought, but now that fuel costs $14 a gallon, I'd be afraid to have an unlockable fuel cap.

I had to put them on my truck tanks. Some scum bag was stealing my fuel.

If you ever ride through Oregon, buying gas should really make you crazy...

Nothing a judicious taste of cattle prod won't cure.

I was just assuming that you were afraid that the immobilizer ring would strike if you shut off the bike and removed the key
to refuel!!!!
