I've noticed that there are quite a few offerings of oil cap for the new bikes. I was wondering if anyone has both and could check if the threads are the same?.

Thanks

I got a Billet type oil filler cap by LC Fabrications after nipping the original cap. It came with a thick ring to seal the filler and fit fine.

I know they threads looks the same from what i can see in pictures. But, I contacted a company in WA about a cap they were selling for 2017+ Bonneville to see if it would fit my old 2002 and they told me NO it would not fit. I tried to get some thread pitch info. on the different years form them and they would tell me nothing.

Both the oil filler cap and the gas caps are interchangeable on air & water cooled twins. I tested this between my '08 T100 and '16 T120. I took particular note that the oil filler cap seats fully home and seals to the engine block. Anyone know anything different, please chime in here.
