    Ran across something you guys may find useful and it's a whole lot cheaper then the Ridley gas cap kit

    Moroso 85282 Moroso Weld-In Fill Cap

    They also have them in billet aluminum.

    They look to be about 3/4" right? Too bad there isn't something available that's closer to 1" - 1 1/2", well other then the pricey MC fill caps.

    Doesn't look to be vented either. I think to work you would need to put some sort of vent on the tank.

    cheapest one i've found is to rip apart the kit tank. on most of them, the bung is pressed and sandwiched in (some older ones are welded, though.) you can cut and pry it right out, then silver solder it into your fancy new tank.

    the cap still blows, though.
