    Default Ryker Gas Cap

    Has anyone tried to put a locking Gas Cap on their Ryker?

    I have one in the mail coming to me right now. Not really sure why I bought it because I think the risk is so minimal but it was another Farkle; so, I said what the heck.

    Helle vstrommer,
    Five German Ryker riders have already successfully used it (Locking Fuel Cap Gates 31859). You can also get it here: https://www.carid.com/gates/locking-...mpn-31859.html

    How does it engage the neck of the tank? It doesn't look long enough to go past the tank 'valve.'

    I don't have a Ryker, so I can only pass on the experiences of other riders. Maybe the picture with the Gates Fuel Cap in a Ryker will help you.

    I didn't realize that these caps are designed especially for the newer cars and trucks with 'capless' fuel filling. I'm not sure I'm ready for one but we will see. They are cheap enough......

    If someone IS looking to do Harm to your Ryker that is Not going to stop them- They could Snip a exposed wire and your Dead in the water? Unless someone is a Ryker owner they wouldn't have a clue as to where the fuel filler is?

    McRuss, it doesn't go deep enough to push the valve (shiny silver flap) down. Just put one on mine & fits/works fine. Only problem is one more key to carry.

    Sarge707, that was my thinking all along. Not only that, I doubt that many people even know the sequence necessary to start one of these things. I feel it's pretty to secure for that reason alone. But despite all of that, I bought one of these locking gas caps anyways. As a matter of fact, it's in my mailbox right now. I have to get home to retrieve it and slap it on. I never said I was smart.

    I wish my GW had a capless gas tank filler. I find it a pain messing with the cap in this day and age. I feel the same about adding a parking brake lock. Try pushing a Ryker and see how far you get. I have insurance for a reason. cueman

    Nothing at All wrong with using it!!! I only drive the Local area so no need for me.

    I bought one for my wife's Rally because I was looking for a simple solution to prevent dirt and debris from getting into the gas tank. The locks is just a bonus...

    Just put it on my 900 today. Works like a charm. Don't mind having an extra key.

    It works! Saw a You Tube video showing it. I ordered one recently from Rock Auto for $13 including shipping, and it should arrive soon.
