EvoTech, who we represent as one of our product lines, has designed a new "1/4 turn" release fuel cap that looks very nice. Best of all they all still use the very clean and functional venting system EvoTech developed, so not only good looking, but very functional. Stock gasket is used, never a problem getting one of these into the future, nice touch.

We are adding these to our offerings, please give us your comments as a product such as this has as much to do with "how it looks", color options and the matrix of other "intangibles" as anything else.

















The way these work is you choose 1) the outer color, 2) the inner color, 3) the bolts color (yes, they are included in the kit!), and the "knob" always stays black.

The color options are the same as the regular fuel caps, mix and match from six (6) colors: Silver, Black, Titanium, Red, Gold and Blue.

Retail price on these has become much nicer with the change in the Euro to the US Dollar, so we can offer these at $149.95 bolts included.

Call us or your favorite supplier to order, but let us know what you think. It is a rainy day here in Chicago so looking for some feedback.

Thanks!

These are images of the actual Yamaha fuel caps, part number FCR-DMY...













We will keep trying to get more as we go, but this is the actual design of the Yamaha cap as you had all asked for.

Thanks, keep the questions coming, and thanks for all the orders already!

what kind of finish is the black? gloss or flat?
Also, is the blue color-matched to the Yamaha blue?

Nice looking gas cap!

OK, the Group Buy is ON...! :toocool:

Here are the particulars:

1) We can only ship to addresses in the US, Canada and Mexico. Our prices are to "kick start" the new product, but there are other distributors in the World who do not need our intrusion into their business. So if you are NOT in one of these places, we are sorry but we cannot offer the GROUP BUY price to you. But, if you have "somebody" here who can buy it for you and ship it over to you, that is fine with us.

2) The GB will go from today until the end of the work day Friday, July 9th, 5pm CST. All orders must be placed by then. No begging, pleading or any excuse works after that! We have to end this sometime, and there are no exceptions!

3) Orders need to be placed with our sales department, please call them toll free at 1-888-963-1212, 9-5 CST, M-F. This gives us the ability to control each special order and not have a "third party" inbetween. Please keep in mind we are short staff for the holiday weekend right now, so if you do not get through just try again, the call is free... :)

4) The Rapid Caps we are told fit any and all "5 bolt" modern Yamaha fuel tanks (all R1's, R6's, etc), but if you have an older bike question, please ask before ordering!

5) Shipping costs will be UPS Ground to your location from our warehouse in Chicago, US Postal if you wish but keep in mind tracking is much more difficult with USPS.

6) In order to keep the price the lowest we can offer, we are going to make all of the GB purchases "special orders", meaning we are going to order from manufacturing once we have an order size that makes a shipment size. Please expect delivery 3-5 weeks after placing your order. We will try to move faster then that, but it is Italy, it is the height of the motorcycle season, this is international freight and all we need is another Iceland volcano or moron in an airplane to back everything up again...! :) Seriously, everyone needs to be a bit patient as this is a new product, overseas, and if the order volume gets high it is going to slow down a little bit. Hang in there with us!

7) The only way to get the GB price is to tell the sales person "Forum Group Buy" when you place the order. We still sell to "everyone else" who calls, but if they do not know about this offer and do not mention "Forum Group Buy" then they pay full price.

8) Remember you need to tell the sales person what color outer, what color inner and what color bolts you want. 3 things to know and remember when you make your call, and knowing this ahead of time will make the phone work that much easier for everyone!

Color choices for inner, outer and bolts are: Red - Black - Titanium - Blue - Gold - Silver

If it matters, the one "exception" to this is that there is the KTM ORANGE inner (not outer) which is available as well. ONLY INNER, not outer and not bolts!

OK, so I think that just about covers it all, if there are any questions just let us know and we will address them quickly for you.

Oh yeah, the PRICE...!

Normal retail is $150, we are going to offer these in this GB for the limited time only for $110 + shipping.

Told you we would make this worth the wait...!

Thanks to everyone, a bit of patience and a great product will be in your hands soon!
