    My gas cap after a long ride hisses at me. way to much pressure buildup! One day it will pop off and go flying LOL

    I made a gas cap out of a chrome valve cover oil fill cap. for a custom gas tank and i drilled a small hole in the top to vent it. I covered the hole with a small pewter hollow backed, hollow eyes, skull & cross bones to hide the hole. it works great and the hollow skull allows it to still vent how it should.

    Why not just unscrew the gas cap while you're riding?

    so you can take one hand off the bars, possibly lose control or have gas splash all over?
    that wouldn't be a good idea.
    the cap has ot be vented to work rightg, taking the cap off while riding is not a solution.
