    I donated my original to another owner who can put them to good use. No point letting them decay on a shelf. This hard to find stuff is really frustrating at times. I couldn't see myself ever needing a "spare" fuel cap. New one should outlast my timeline

    So you had to change the ignition switch, helmet holder for the new keys?
    Cheers, Ulrich

    The sale was only for 2 keys that match the gas cap. This forces me to add a key to my key ring. No big deal. Rekeying the tumblers of the ignition switch and side covers is probably much more involved than I want to take on at the moment.
