with the black tank that comes with the tank.

I am thinking about riding it to school, but don't want someone who doesn't like me to poor a coke in my tank.

Any suggestions or moped gas caps that would work please let me know.

For me it is worth $20-$30 to not worry.

i have the same concern on my bike im afraid one of the freshman will mess with it the best thing i can think of is turning the gas cap at an angle that i will remember so i can see if it was unscrewed

I always thought that was for people stealing your gas... I never thought of people messing with your bike!

anyone know what size cap we need to buy?

There are a couple different sizes...some that are 3000...some that are 3800...which kind is compatible with these black tanks.

For me...it is worth that $20 to avoid a destroyed engine by a pissy underclassmen who thinks he's funny

I think it's a lot more likely that someone would mess with your gas tank
out of just plain old mean heartedness than to just steal your gas.

After all, it's not really like there's a lot of gas to steal, you know?

I rode my bike to work one day and parked it in a special locked cage for employees who ride bikes to work. Guess what I found when my day was over? Some fellow biker (only bikers had the combination to the lock on the cage) didn't like me having a motor on my bike and cut my valve stems.

So, someone tampering with the gas is not out of the ordinary. All it takes is some "die hard" cyclist who is pissed at the idea of a motored bike. If you live in Colorado, you know what I mean.

30mm looks like the right gas cap size
