November 9, 2007My left gas cap rattles bad. This is the second one thats done this. Anyone else have this wonderul problem?
November 10, 2007Nope - Never has happened on my 2000 Fatboy..........
November 10, 2007I believe it.....maybe try it one more time and when you close it...only go one click....or you can actually fill the gap( between metal and plastic) inside the cap with silicone .....it,ll find its way.
November 12, 2007I had this same issue with my HD cap and found a fix. Take the cap off and get a standard screw driver, a hammer and a towel. Place the cap upside down on the towel. Make sure the towel is on something hard and sturdy. Place the screw driver on the edge of the cap and lightly tap it with the hammer. I did mine at 12, 3 , 6 and 9 o'clock. Put the cap back on and it should be nice and quiet.
I am using an arlen ness baby moon now, no issues.
Hope this helps.
