Safety wire, with a clip through the cap itself will do the job. He was joking about loctite, just had to make sure you know that.

And all racers "dummy cord" their caps...so now you'll just look cool.

Re: Oil cap blew off today.

If you still have the cap, you should inspect both it and the threads on the cover and confirm that they are not damaged. I have had a lot of bikes and have NEVER had this happen, and I very very seriously doubt that you had enough crankcase pressure to literally blow it out of there. And if it did, it likely left part of the plastic cap inside the engine.

My suspicion is that you didnt tighten it properly and the rpm made it vibrate out. You absolutely should not ride it that way, as it likely will blow out hot oil onto your bike, you, and possibly your tires, which can be extremely dangerous. If its running, the crankcase pressure will probably keep most stuff out of there, especially as rpms build, but its really not something you want to roll the dice on for a variety of reasons.

You can safety wire the cap, but DO NOT LOCTITE IT. Also, make sure that the Oring on the cap is intact and not worn, as it provides some of the necessary friction to keep the cap on and from turning.

Re: Oil cap blew off today.

Where do you purchase the safety wire clips? I don't know their proper name, I apologize.
