A locking GM cap will fit it, I believe.

Install a Corbin seat - they lock. More comfort, and gas tank security.

I can't believe they wouldn't put one on from the factory. A couple other gripes.
No helmet lock
No safety switch for the side stand.
For the premium price you'd think the MoCo would include things like that.

I asked this question when I first got my R. I have been told that the locking gas cap for GM pickups built between 98 and 03 will work. You can get them at any auto parts store. None of the HD accessory caps will work.

I can't believe you guys have people siphoning your tanks. I hadn't heard of that happening since the 80's.

Don't worry, Lux lives in CA. OH is too far away for him to bother messing with your R :rofl2:

Seriously, you have people that don't like you that much? That's a bummer.

No not at all. I don't have a garage however so it sits outside all night. I'd feel more comfortable with one which is why i asked.

Locking gas cap, no locking gas cap. If someone wants to do something to your bike/gas tank they will. 90% of people do not even know where the gas tank is. Lock only keep honest people honest..............

What's this about no interlock for the side stand? Is this an R thing?

Brian I believe he was referring to this comment :D .

To answer his question the sidestand interlock wasn't standard/available until '07.

With the small tank, it would take the siphoning of about 8-10 vrods for someone to get a tank of gas for their truck/car
Unless they are stealing it for their lawnboy. LOL
