Alternative Gas Caps from other bikes?
« on: September 09, 2016, 11:05:29 PM »
I can't bring myself to buy a $125 gas cap.  I am seeing repro Honda gas caps for $15. 
Are there any other gas caps that would fit a 175HS tank?

It won't work. I tried one and wasted my money but it was worth a chance

It looks like it would work... what part didn't fit?  The OD too big, too small?   the inner part too big or small?

Try these

I bought the AUD $7.84 (including postage) from Uxcell in Hong Kong ( 3rd one) - it does not have a breather hole in the top of the cap, but breathes through the crimped area under the top of the cap. I have bought several items from this seller - however as the postage is cheap it takes a while to arrive.
Cheers

Thanks RAY!  I think it is worth the $6 usd to try it on my 175 HS.

I have used HVC in the past for RD400 parts, and not had much luck with customer service or product quality, perhaps someone else will have better luck?
