Pirates' Lair is proud to announce
that we are currently the ONLY US importer of these British-made
Billet Aluminum BMW Gas Caps. We offer these in Silver or Black. Did you know that you can buy
a billet gas cap for just about any bike in the universe except for..
yep.. you guessed it... a BMW. No idea why.. Are we not worthy? I have
one on both my Yamaha and MV, but as far as I know, these are the only
ones available for BMWs thanks to my incessant begging and pleading with
our good friends at Oberon Engineering
in the UK.
Is this beeeautiful
or what?? These are designed to mimic a race bike's gas cap... sleek,
attractive, and functional. Valentino Rossi would be impressed. This is
a direct replacement for your factory fuel filler cap and includes stainless
steel fasteners. In case you are wondering.. No.. they don't lock.. and
neither do the gas caps on any late model 4-wheeled vehicle you own so
for gods sake.. unless you live in an area with roving bands of petrol
thieves.. willing to risk 2 years in jail for $9 worth of gas...Relax and
fagetaboutit. Easy on/easy off without a key. These will
fit 90% of the BMW's ever made with the 6 bolt
pattern including the K1200S, K1200R, K1200R Sport, K1200RS, pre-08 R1200R,
R1200GS, R1200RT, and of course, the early and late K1200GT.. If
in doubt..Email me and we'll figure
Note: Will NOT fit the 2008 R1200R or any other BMW with this type gas cap.. Click Here. or this type gas cap.. Click Here. FYI.. we have discovered (3) different type factory gas caps on the K1300S and K1300GT so we recommend our SSR Billet Gas Cap for those bikes.
California Customers: If you live in California or anywhere else where the fuel nozzle has the vapor recovery boot, you already know that the stock cap is a pain in the arse. The stock cap will not open enough to get past the vapor boot so with the deep filler neck, it is almost impossible to fill without splashing. Not good. These billet gas caps eliminate this issue for easy, splash-free fueling.
