    I was on a ride the other day on my 1986FXSTC, doing about 120km,when my oil pressure dipstick cap suddenly wasnt where it should have been,one of the boys following reckons it shot off like a bullet,if that was so what would cause the pressure build up in the oil tank?
    Or would it have just come off and when it hit the road,it shot off like a bullet.

    Usually if the tank is overfilled this will happen. Also check the crank case breather system.
