999 Fuel TanK Filler Cap Alternate

Can anyone recommend and alternate fuel tank cap? The 999 stock filler cap looks just blah!

Thanks,

Bill

There's few keyless on Ebay, stay AWAY from them, knockoffs that leak, I can vouch for that, go with a reputable name

I agree the aluminium cap is pretty naff, it looks so much better painted.

That is one sweet looking bike. Looks as good as my parts unlimited. Any reason you switch from the carbon cap?

I have a Ducati Performance cap on my bike. It looks nice.
You still can find one at a good price on eBay.

The carbon cap was never installed. I purchased the bike and some spares (like a really nice carbon hugger which I also still have sitting in a box) from the original owner. The carbon cap is beautifully made but the race tech cap looks a little more Racey I think. The carbon would look nice on a red or black bike with no race graphics. I had a 999s that had carbon hugger, tank guard, clutch guard and cap that look really great on that bike.
