    A quick question about the push cap for the engine oil. I have had issues with it popping up while riding. This is usually due to my leg pushing it down on a bump or something. Is there any way to fix this, or is there a different style cap?

    Had to use my man muscles to twist the cap the rest of the way in to make if flush with the tank. It wasn't that hard, actually. I just needed to give it that extra little twist.

    Not Just You.....

    On my 06 1200 R, it IS a BUGGER at times to tighten the cap all the way.

    These Caps Look Nice but a PAIN to work with at times.

    That's probably the only thing I didn't like about my 05 Sporty...oil cap/stick was a bugger to remove & tighten...
