How Does a Motorcycle Work?

Gas Cap

  • When you need to put gasoline in your bike's gas tank, you open the tank with the gas cap. The gas cap may be in plain sight or hidden under a lockable door.
  • Cap caps are under pressure and sometimes hard to unscrew.
  • Some gas caps are not tied to the tank so be careful where you put them and don't let one roll away.
  • Don't ever sit on your bike while you fill the gas tank. You may spill gas on your crotch or worse yet, set fire to your bike if you're smoking. Get off your bike and fill from the side.
  • If you buy a tank bag, be certain that you can get to the gas cap.
