Center Cap on Steering wheel fell off

Recommended Posts

2000 vlx

Center cap on steering wheel of 2000 vlx fell off today. Will not stay back in looks like it might have had some sort of glue holding it in. Does anybody know what to use to put it back in place. Also since it is off if I wanted to center the wheel do you just loosen nut? It needs to be moved about a quarter turn to be level when going straight.

Ours comes off as well, but we haven't secured it yet. I was told that wrapping some thin strips of tape around the outer edges would it make it fit better. It doesn't help that my 2 yr. old likes to take it off. I'm open to other suggestions.

Mine fell out as well. I just used come tube and tile adhesive caulk and it has stayed just fine.

One wrap of electrical tape did the trick for mine...

Throw a little silicone on the inside of the wheel, and put the cover back on. :)

Mine stays in place all by itself unless I pull it off. :)

As far as centering the wheel. I tried to break that nut off in the center and it fought me too much so I just took off all the allen screws and moved it that way.
