I always use the Vortex caps on both our street and race bikes. Nothing like finding that you left the gas cap key to the race bike at home. I do perfer the old style caps (they have larger openings and no lock) on bikes that need to make pit stops like Daytona and the Isle of Man.
Gas cap seemed like good quality, but for some reason the lock does not line up with the cap when it's tight. I can get it to line up if I loosen the cap a little. Not very happy with this product.
Have had fuel pressure issues multiple times with the stock cap/ seals. The Vortex cap was an easy fix that looks great too. Took all of 10 minutes to install and it has completely solved my fuel issues. Only problem is there is no locking cap.
I was on the fence between this and the Driven D-Axis. I have the driven on my CBR1KRR and love it but for the lower profile and price difference(Motosport had a sale on the Vortex at the time), I decided to try the V-3 out for my GSXR track bike.
When installing, I doubted I'd be able to get the cap to seat flush because of how it was going on but it made a tight seal when it was fully bolted on and looked great.
Between the two, I would give the Driven the edge since it has no threading at all, although I think the V-3 looks slightly better.
Besides the fact that it took about 30 seconds to install, it makes the tank look very high end with this ultra lightweight cap on it.
I was skeptical about ordering this as all the pictures show it with a tri-bolt setup, my first gen SV-650 uses a four bolt square pattern setup. Figured what the heck, Motosport is good about their return policy. Worked out perfect, there is a special model for tanks like mine with the square pattern. It fits like a charm, is much lighter than stock and looks great on the tank! Would highly recommend!
easy install I like the fact I don't have to have my keys to open no scratches on gas tank looks cool and functions great better than the last vortex gas cap I had on 08 gsxr 750 this is on a 09 r1
