No, we can already do that.

The mod. allows the fuel cap to be closed without the key being in it, which cannot be done on a stock bike.

YA can't just answer the question without showing how to actually perform the mod, with many pics.  tp ;D

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.
    • C-14 farkles you almost cannot ride without.

I do not have any photos, and I never did the mod. Personally, opening the fuel cap, removing the key and then trying to close the fuel cap has never been all that much of an issue for me.... :-)

When I am in a hurry, I just put the fob key in the fuel cap and leave it there for the duration of the ride. That way I can fuel the bike without shutting it off and re- starting it.... it allows me to reset the trip meter and scribble a couple of notes while fueling.

Is that "allowed"?  I thought it was unsafe to leave an engine running while fueling (at least that is what all those stickers on the pump say).  Call me chicken...

Thank you Ms Nicole.  Harley sells a push button to replace their cap lock mechanism for a few bucks.  Two screws and maybe two minutes installation time.  You listening KHI?  ;D ;D  Maxtog, I always turn my engine off when refueling, as I am getting a little clumsy in my dottering years and fear I will spill and burn up the bike in the Shell/Exxon/Valero parking lot.  Not cool....tp

+1 with the off the bike thing.  Got a pants full of gas once, when the pump's auto cutoff didn't, when on a Harley (teardrop tank), and I learned my lesson...  You don't realize how fast it's coming out until it overflows on you.  tp

No, it is not. Like speeding, it is to be avoided at all costs and would be a life- threatening thing to do. Why that would be like smoking and fueling a car (anyone old enough to remember that?)- a horrible, horrible thing that will result in certain death.

Is this similar to using power tools on the deck of a crude oil tanker?

Man, you sound exactly like my folks, always warning me of this and that danger, never realizing that I had become a man, with my own sense of self preservation, NOT!!!  (An old skool response), as I love ringing the snot out of the C14 way more often than they would have  ever  believed.  They never wanted me to EVER be on two wheels.  What a disappointment I must have been, 60 motorcycles and a hand full of bicycles later...  Oh well, a great Wednesday to all.   tomp

If i had 10% of the gas I pumped with a cigarette hanging out of my mouth when I was a kid, more than a few of us would never buy fuel again.
