Just a stupid thought. Given your emergency, have you considered that a Jap car gas cap may fit the bill here ? Got a Honda car in the driveway ?

I usually put mine back in the gas well and turn it on it's side so the lid won't close. That way I'm sure I put it back on and the lid is closed before taking off. Takes too many brain cells to remember where it is if I put it somewhere else. Ride safe..(with the gas cap on....)

Ditto on that.

I think you're right. I have read that a Civic cap will fit. Furthermore I remember others going to Advance or Walmart and buying a cap that fits a civic for only a few bucks.

I took a chance last night and grabbed the cap off my Craftsman lawn tractor and it FIT! It has a vent hole on the top but it will at least keep me on the road untill i get the right one.

Wouldn’t that make it more like a Molotov cocktail?

They called me yesterday morning and all the parts came in. Honda responded to the dealer “critical part need” and shipped it from Japan. I thought that was pretty good being three weeks earlier than they said. I found all but one part on my own, but without that it didn’t do any good so I let it go.

We are leaving for Memphis this morning on the Yamaha. Weather looks perfect.
