    Petrol Cap

    I just wanted to get some feedback on this, whether it is a poor design and how you fellow riders deal with it.

    So, I have a few keys on my key ring and the first time I went to fill up this weekend, I noticed that without care the bunch of keys will drop onto the tanks paintwork when you open the cap as you cannot remove the key when the cap is open.

    Don't suppose there is much you can do but be careful but I thought I would ask anyway.

    I don't keep my bike key on a bunch. It's on it's own with just a rubber key ring. :002:

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Same here. One key on a Rubber fob when using the key with the bike.

    Off the bike, all my keys are kept together using a carabiner so I can take off keys as I need. Used the carabiner method for years.

    Few years ago I bought a Yamaha keyring, its effectively a fabric cone/ sock.
    The ignition key is exposed and on the outside , house/ luggage/ disc lock inside fabric sock. Stops the headstock and tank getter scratched.

    When I went up to two bikes I popped to the dealer to get another and was told they only had a few come in but could have sold hundreds.

    I searched high and low to find one but no joy. I actually made one in the end. It til me ages but I still use it.
