Vortex Fuel Cap

Vortex. Anodized Billet Aluminum Caps. Review

I’m getting the bike ready for track day.  I purchased a 2nd hand tank, and while I could swap the fuel cap, I wanted something different.  I found these billet caps from Vortex.  The person taking the order was courteous, and seemed knowledgeable.  Total time to my door was 3 days.

Quality: Top notch.  Very few machining marks.  Anodizing was also very smooth and consistent.  The base has a thick rubber seal that mates well with the tank.  The threads on the cap are fine and it seals well.  I have seen other units going for much more.  While you loose the ability to lock the cap, I don’t feel it’s even necessary in my environment.

I do wish they offered it in a GOLD anodizing.  You listening Vortex 🙂

I may be able to get a discount for a group buy.  Let me know if you are interested.
