    I don't need no stinking locking gas cap

    Disabled the locking gas cap today. Turned the cap over, removed two screws and the steel cup, lifted out the locking pawls and springs, replaced the cup and screws.

    Why a motorcycle needs a locking gas cap is beyond me.

    I disabled mine on the first day.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    ... and in fairness... VROD riders (they can pass anything but a gas station.)

    Personally cannot live without a locking gas cap. Other than it being stolen (which has happened to me personally with my H-D back in Ireland); back in the day, before cars had them, my mother had someone put sugar in her tank more than once. Another time, someone I knew had their gas tank filled with Diesel. Seriously... obviously a pissed off frenemy or ex or something.... Finally, one friend I have actually heard banging inside his tank...someone had actually thrown several rocks inside it.

    Stupid but nevertheless true stories. I always feel uneasy if I don't have one as a result.

    Or alternatively ,

    Remove the gas cap, and take out the key.

    The two "fingers" will be locked in the retracted position.,

    Put gas cap back on.

    If you ever need to lock it, use the key.
