Replacement Gas Cap for 98 Sportster

Recommended Posts

jgadoury

Save yourself a lot of grief ....

If you 've lost the gas cap on your 98" Sportster you'll quickly find that the replacements from Malibu have been discontinued ... & most dealers are sold out :-(

After many phone calls , web searches and trial and error, I found that there's a PERKO replacement cap that fits perfectly ( & looks pretty good too ).

The PERKO # is 0126DP0BLK a web search will turn up many- or your local marina may have it on a "hang tag" rack - I paid about $6.00 at a marina.

It's about the size of a $.50 piece - ( it is black) - does not cover the fuel fill flange like the original, but still looks fine w a sort of "competition look" because you can see the flange & mounting screw heads.

It comes down to $6 ... or replacing the filler neck and adapting the filler hose size ... I chose to spend the $6 and "Keep On Skiing :-) "

Enjoy !!!

this works PERFECT on my 2000 Sportster as well. I picked it up locally at Bass Pro Shop but can get just about anywhere like iboats.com, bakesonline.com, westmarine, etc
