07 C50 gas cap mod - different than the Volusia directions

Just finished the gas cap mod. Very easy! See below.
Below is the gas cap from the '07 C50.


Below is the gas cap taken apart.
You can see how I like to lay things out as I disassemble them.

The 2 long screws at the top left are the first things removed. They are placed in the order and position I removed them ( right one on the right).

This assures they go back in the same hole they came out of, in case one is longer than the other.
I then place the next peice (blue plastic cover) below that and work laying pieces out in columns.

Everything to the left of the yellow divider line did NOT have to be taken apart to access the screw that holds the key cover on. I was following the directions for the Volusia's.



Below shows the screw with locktite replaced, and how the gasket goes back on. I have no idea what purpose the tiny metal clip in the lower left does, just be careful not to loose it. I'm sure it voids your warranty if lost!


Below is the reassembly of the gasket.



This was very easy and quick to do. I should point out that I only have just over 1,000 miles on my bike and my key cover screw was loose already.
Thanks to this forum, I did the mod and now should never have to worry about losing my gas cap key cover.
You guys & gals are the GREATEST!

Nice Pics, and Explanation.
Now you will get 5 Mpg more with this mod.

Never let your motorcycle take you somewhere your brain didn't go five seconds earlier.

Just did mine! Mine is an 07 limited edition and it had the loctite, so I put more on and slapped her back together. I still recomend doing it, at least you will know for sure, and man was that easy.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy.

Nice work.
Since he has an '07, no rejet necessary... I hope I am not too late to have saved snorky the trouble of attempting this...

no worries there. I figger it would take at least a year to locate the carb on his FI bike!

Thanks! Being that I got about 700 miles on my 07, methinks it might be a simple winter mod to undertake. Especially since we can't do the REAL gas cap mod by turning the flap the correct way!
