Has anyone seen a keyless fuel filler cap for a 2015 or used one?
Thanks in advance

There are tons of them on the aftermarket. But they all screw off and do not retain. So possibility of losing it when fueling.

If the bike came with a removable gas cap. People would gripe about loosing them.
Haha, nah.... Thats the stuff young guys do. Owned too many bikes with removable caps. My other Harleys have regular gas caps. Havent lost one yet.

Haha, a car I guess..... A MC where the gas is sloshing between your genies and you cant tell you didnt put a cap back on? LOL, better give up MCs.

Like Patrickg450 I cut down a key, (not an oem one), except that I also removed the flap and put a small plastic knob from the hardware store, (Ace or Home Depot carry them), so that I just left it in the cap. It's too short to work in the ignition. You then always have a keyless gas cap and if you don't want it, you just pull the key out. You can easily re-install the flap again if you wanted to later. It's not a permanent mod. The knob has a set screw and sits flush into the lock. Most don't even notice it. No more pulling the key from the ignition at gas stops.

How do you remove the flap over the key ?

Remove the cap, (there is one bolt on the inside of the ring), then drift out the small pin that the flap pivots on. A very small spring and ball will also come out then, so do it over a rag or towel and keep track of those for later use.

Edit - You do have to disassemble the cap further from the back side to allow access to the flap pivot pin. It's pretty self explanatory when you start pulling it apart and simple to put back together.

Eric, love that your tank is filthy.

LOL, my user name on ADV is 'Dirtybike'.

The tank bag was a SWMotech with the quick release Evo tank ring. That likely did help somewhat, but honestly, when you're riding not a lot of rain hits the tank until it's a real frog strangler. Not that I haven't ridden in plenty of those too. With the knob, it keeps some water out too.

When I did my MOD I looked for a cap to cover or make the KEY look cooler, never found one and had not thought about it until now.......I too have a quick release tank bag, but mine is a WAY expensive GIVI.
