Is that center screw sticking up? That can hurt, no?

I know right. There is nothing more of a hassle and time consuming as taking the key from the ignition to the gas cap.

Does the cap come off in your hand making another pain trying to figure out where to put it?

I like the security of the key lock however the size of the tank means Im opening it more often than I would like.

The whole fueling scenario made slightly longer when you ride with tank bag installed. Without tank bag and having a keyed gas cap makes fueling fast and no brainer. Having to put down a fuel cap, Id rather simply use a key and open the door on a hinge, less stuff to keep track of. I also like security on my cap.

And then all you need is one little old lady trying to pay by cheque, one lottery addict getting their numbers checked or a mum and kids who think a petrol station is a substitute for a supermarket and all those seconds you've saved are wasted.

Seriously, I don't get it myself. Nothing wrong with the stock one and no-one's going to be able to dump debris in your tank out of spite while you're not looking.

Better yet... just pay at the pump with a credit/debit card and avoid going inside.

Me either. The last thing I want is a gas cap that isn't attached and has to be set down somewhere when fueling. And I wouldn't give up a lock on my tank, either.

None of my Harleys have locking gas caps, and I don't care for that. It only takes once, whether it's having someone put something in the tank, siphon gas out of the tank, or the cap gets damaged, lost, or I forget to put it back on before riding away.

Other than de-gloving (which has to happen anyway), using a key to open the gas filler isn't a big deal at all. I prefer it.
