Tank cap help

I have this old KZ1000 tank, and I need a fuel cap. I figger this is some sort of generic thing I can get for cheap -- just want something round and shiny.

Can anybody point me to just what generic cheap thing will fit? An Emgo product...?

Doesn't look like any KZ1000 tank that I've ever seen. Thought they were hinged

Hmmm....good point. I got it off the shelf at the salvage shop with all the other KZ tanks. It is exact in profile, and the mounts are the same.

But, every other KZ tank I see on fleabay has a hinged cap.

So...any idea what cap might fit this?

Maybe it's a police tank...?

This looks like it might fit, and it's not hinged.

There's a big difference between "shiny, round and cheap" and an NOS $80 cap. If I were you I would take the tank to an auto parts store and see what fits. I've heard of chrome VW caps fitting some motorcycle tanks. You could also take the measurements of the opening and do a Google and see what comes up. Emgo probably does make one, but it's impossible to say without seeing the measurements

Make sure that it's vented if you need one to be vented. Many auto caps are not
