    Hi,
    I wonder if anyone uses a lockable engine oil cap.
    I can't find one for the CT.

    Is someone going to steal or contaminate your oil?   :187:

    Make it finger tight - then using mole grips give it 1/8th turn more?

    It's not enough to shear the top off but makes it just too tight to undo by hand

    Just enough should anyone want to try and tip/pour anything in maliciously

    Old trick a spanner man once told me

    You can't be too cautious when you are staying overnight in some strange places.
    DEMBONES's advice sounds good.

    I bought a Touratech  Oil filler cap  in 2016 for my new CT 2016

    I don't see it now at Touratech site 
    You can check out with them and see if it's the same for AT , and other Honda bikes

    wish you to find

    Have them on both my bikes. Due to the very overt location of the filler cap it would be very tempting to some scumbag to throw crap in there or at the very least take off the cap and leave you stranded. It's a no brainier, well worth the piece of mind.
