Fuel Cap

Recommended Posts

I'm in CO and recently placed an order with T7Rally.com.  Prior to placing the order I had some questions about what I was ordering and Ben responded very promptly over several emails.  I placed my order on a 4/14/21 and received a shipping confirmation email with a DHL tracking # on 4/15/21.  My order showed up in CO on Sunday 4/18/21.

 

Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend T7Rally as the service I received was great.  I still need to install the gas cap and windscreen adjuster but the quality of the products I purchased seems to be very good so I don't anticipate any issues with the installs.

Same here. I get stuff from the EU via DHL FASTER than I do from the west coast via UPS/FEDEX or USPS!

Installed one yesterday. Everything went smooth with the exception of getting the gasket around the tank cover. Was a real PIA. I warmed it a little with a heat gun to make it more flexible and finally got it in.  The material is a stiffer rubber than the OEM gasket. 

 

Other than that brilliant design and looks as good if not better than stock.

I agree 100%, the gasket was the only difficult part. I'm loving my cap, just filled up yesterday with my cap flipped up and attached to the bike 😲

Has anyone laid the bike down and checked for fuel leaks?

I fell over a while back on a sandy trail. No leaks 🙂

I think it would perform however the stock cap performs since the sealing is stock.

I personally hate flip-up caps.  So glad the T7's is like a dirtbike's.  Trying to pull a fuel nozzle spring-loaded CAFE boot up with gloves on is a pain in the ass with a cap in the way.  I'm gonna make a key blank mod so the cap can be removed without having to use the ignition key.

A men.  I fought that frigging boot on 2 different bikes back to back for years. Love the removable cap! Key blank is a good idea but I don't even mind taking my key out of the ignition for fueling. It's not like you're gonna lose the gas cap/key while refueling?

I’m sure someone else will be making one soon enough.

Sadly the  bad reports about this company far outweigh the good...

I bought the black fuel cap. Fantastic service from start to finish. Supurb quality and very good YouTube installation video. T7 rally highly recommended. It was a hobby job to start and I don’t think they had the service levels at the start. Much better now. Make your own mind up
