Hi All,

On my BMW, there is a way to modify the fuel cap so that a key is not needed to unlock it.

Has anyone figured out how to do this on the Burgman?

You may find a gas cap at the
junk yard.

You only need to unlock it with the key. Then just start to twist it open & pull the key out & finish twisting it open.;)

I don't think its too much of a problem using the key to unlock it. At least it makes me remove the keys from the ignition - if I modified mine I'd still have to take the keys out when I went to pay or petrol in case the bike got stolen.

I've got something like that on mine and it works just fine. I saw no need for a locking gas cap on a scooter...... like, who's gonna steal that meager amount of gas? ;)
In some places gasoline is far more expensive than it is in the United States. And it prevents one sort of vandalism (crud added to the fuel) as well. But, yeah, for most US riders, it's probably a moot issue.

WOW, I had been doing it like DesertRat, worked fine but still a pain.

My 2011, squeeze gently on non reinforced sides, lift slightly and turn, comes right off. Thanks, I saved $6.00 usd
