Testing : Terry Cable KTM Fuel Cap
Screw Type Fuel Cap For KTM
Do you hate your stock KTM fuel cap? I know many people do. I can’t say I have had as many troubles as some. But I understand the point. Terry Cable has come up with a solution in the form of a beautiful machined aluminum cap and threaded insert.
The installation is fairly straight forward. The threaded insert sets into the opening in the tank and is held in place by a number of very tiny set screws. It took me two tries to figure out how it all goes. The main thing to remember is that the set screws do not actually thread into anything. On my first try, I did not have the insert turned far enough and the screws were trying to push into the existing plastic threads. But once I figured it out, it was all smashing.
They are very tiny screws, as is the wrench that comes with them. It is a good idea to tape the mouth of the tank while working on everything. I dropped the key into the tank by accident. Fortunately it was easy to fish out with my extension magnet.
Once everything is installed, it all works very slick. The new cap takes a firm twist to seal completely, but is then leak free. I have a couple of days testing so far and another week of riding ahead. So stay tuned for a follow up on the Terry Cable KTM fuel cap.
