Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Has anyone tried diesel-truck oil filler caps as fuel tank caps? (for home-made or custom tanks. I mean the kind with the little t-wrench on them, that expand into the filler neck)

Still need to adjust the chain, but tomorrow I think I will go for a ride.
