I'm interested in replacing my stock 2016 700r gas cap with one that has a short breather hose and vent cap. Accordingly, I would like people opinions on which ones they consider to be the best. Aesthetically, I'm most interested in ones that are either all or mostly black to match the plastic covering my tank. Also, the more unique or rare the cap and breather hose are the better. Thanks!

I'm not amused
I'm extremely amused.

Furthermore it's a fuel cap. Not an engine rebuild. Find one you like and buy it. Not that big of a deal.

The factory cap is plastic and lighter then any aluminum cap. Why would you pay to add unneeded weight to your bike? Next you'll be asking why is the bike tippy and top heavy. Unless it's a trailer queen, then we can really spend your money to dress it up.

Haha sorry Dez you’re probably right. And sorry Mopappy I am just pushing your buttons!!
I just bought the ultra Chinese unbranded eBay cap. It’s anodized red and I like it. Eh.

It's a fuel cap. Not a gearing question. Not asking about a cam. Not asking about changing the clutch. Not asking about splitting the cases. It's a fuel cap.

Here’s one that came on a Raptor I purchased today. Never seen these before but it looks like it’s what you were asking for!

I’ve tried the Alba and it tends to spew some gas when it’s filled up all the way in Glamis. Kinda annoying but not that bad. I guess it’s the valve but could be the threads as well, not sure

Those stubby vent tubes always spewed fuel on me when trail riding. I went back to the stock cap and the long vent tube that feeds down the steering tubes. no more mess.
