    Reading the manual for the 2012 Thunderbird 1600 (get it on Wednesday - 2 sleeps to go) it says you just unscrew the petrol cap to fill it up. Does this mean it is not lockable (or is it like some cars where the proximity of the key unlocks it?) and if so whats to stop some ne'er do well sticking a rag into it and turning it into a Molotov cocktail (sorry got a vivid imagination).

    It’s not lockable mate :confused:
    Think @Dozers Dad might have one for sale that might fit your tank:)

    Hi Steve,

    Penny pinching on Triumphs part = no locking fuel cap! :confused:

    I have a brand new/boxed one for sale if you need one?

    Yes, definitely interested in your cap. If ok, will wait until I've got the bike (should be this week) and then I'll pm you for the price etc - obviously if someone comes in before then for it, I'll understand.
