How to buy a locking gas cap for a Vrod.
(1) drive to walmart
(2) walk to automotive section in back
(3) reach up and grab a STANT 10501 locking gas cap (or 11501 blister card)
(4) walk back to front of store and pay $12
(5) drive home and screw it onto the Vrod fuel tank

Stant 10501 (in box) is the best fit for all VRSC & perfect for '07 - '10
Stant 11501 same as above on a blister pack instead of a box
Stant 17501 keyed alike (special order)
stant 21501 keyed alike (2 pack)
other caps that will work:
CarQuest 35064 (same as Stant)
Napa Balkamp BK7031614
Murray 55010 (Low profile) wide top & better for pre '07 bikes or rick's tank
CST 5501 (same as above)
Murray 57910 (tall with key hole cover) wide top & better for pre '07 bikes
CST 5791 (same as above)
the stock cap for all V-Rods is 61274-92 '02-'10

Why do you even need one? Does the seat lock on the newer bikes?

Thanks for the info. I'll be buying my locking gas cap this weekend.

Great preventative measure.

If you don't buy one and someone drops something bad in the tank you will be kicking yourself.

Great suggestion. I hadnt thought of that considering a high majority of the people that have looked at my DX can't figure out where I put the gas...

bitch n' bar drunk

the short answer......bitchy girl friend, or drunk guy a bar.
:stilpoke:
why a locking gas cap?
So the drunkin' bitch doesn't fill'er up with diesel and the bar drunk doesn't urinate in your tank during happy hour:D

Thanks for this post, very helpful. Just curious which is the lowest profile locking fuel cap. You say Murray 55010 but wonder if there is not something with a flush profile?

I found this one at O'Reilly Auto Parts:

MasterPro Select Locking Fuel Cap #55010. (made in Israel). It fits perfectly.

On my 13 DX the stock cap makes contact in the pocket of the seat pan as it is. A higher profile cap will be worse. Just pointing this out.
