I had to go online and research the steps involved in the latest install which I undertook today.

After opening the package that the mail delivered to me and making sure I recieved the proper parts, I grabbed the bike key and went out to the garage. After lining up and inserting the key in the fuel cap and rotating it 180 degrees, I then laboriously unscrewed counterclockwise the stock fuel cap and placed it on my workbench. Next I picked up the Motone satin brass replacement fuel cap and screwed it into the fill opening, making sure to tighten it securly.

Next, I stepped back to admire my handiwork.:grin2:

Seat of the pants dyno says I gained about 15 RWHP and the fuel consumption actually improved by 3 MPG. The exhaust got a little deeper rumble too. Oh, and the extra weight made the rear shock a little less harsh too.

I'll get a pic up soon, I'm goint to take a nap to get my strength back first.

Most impressive, but have you remembered to remove the key from the stock fuel cap - this is a very common mistake which even seasoned Bobber riders have made, much to their embarrassment!
