Replacement Gas Cap

My gas cap on my 2006 V-Star 1100 Silverado needs to be replaced. A quick internet search didn't yield much. I did find this one on Ebay from Hong Kong:

Any other ideas?

They're out there on the internet. I would recommend an OEM cap.

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.

The above would prevent you from having to have 2 keys.. But would take a little bit of extra work on installation..

Agreed, I would make sure I only have to use 1 key.

I bought that exact one...imo its better than stock. you cant remove the key from the cap until you press it in and it locks fully, I also like the brushed finish rather than chrome.

downside is the need for another key.
