Regular Gas Cap?

Does anyone know if a regular Gas Cap will fit the k1200lt?
I've a 2000 and wondered about swapping it out.

Thanks

Re: Regular Gas Cap?

Yeah, I've seen the mod.
I'd rather just have a regular cap on it, without a lock.

Re: Regular Gas Cap?

Most of them are pretty much the same these days as the car caps all have to be tested for emissions so there are only a couple test plugs. One of them would have to fit as long as it wasn't too tall.

Try your car cap and see if it threads in.

Nope... Regular vehicle caps don't fit!

If you go to the Technical file area you will find a document that shows you how to disable the lock, no key required.

Are you aware of any other places to get that information? For some reason, there are no posts in the Technical File area.

Strange, I did not look before directing you there. I'll try to attach the pdf to this message.

I just looked seems to be there for me?? You need to go to the right top and select tools, the technical, then files.
