    For the life of me I don't know how this seal fits on this cap.
    Is this right?. IMAG1809.jpg IMAG1810.jpg IMAG1810.jpg IMAG1809.jpg

    yes, the seal can be stretched over the metal "dish"without removing it, warm and well lubed o_O is helpful. Getting the spring compressed and the retainer in and out is always fun. I tend to clamp compress it kind of half in a vice. Never hurts to clean that small convoluted venting path when you have it apart.

    Jim I have a plan. It's something to deviate from. Top Contributor XS650.com Supporter

    You can almost double the stretch of a rubber seal by puttin' it in boiling water for a few minutes. Caution, it gets HOT:rolleyes:
