    That stupid silver insert makes visibility poor when filling and the shut off on the fuel pump can't read properly. They are a pain, and the faux rad cap fitting is an arsenal.

    They have updated the cap - but the dealers have no idea why. I found that if the overflow/ expansion clip is fitted legs up - it pushes on the center lug and pops the cap ring off.

    Hows the new cap secured? Did you have to buy it or was it a warranty claim?

    One stealership in Abergele said not warranty as never had heard of it falling off, but another got one on warranty. Go figure...... just watched a video on YouTube and the bike they are riding has one missing
