Hi- has anyone changed from a old style petrol filler cap/neck to a more modern flush type and if so was it easy or do you have any photos etc?

thanks

Dave

Hi Dave, no, I went the other way with my CB750, from the flush type to a flip-up Monza cap. I would think going flush will involve cutting and welding the tank, not something to be taken lightly.

The only other way would be to get hold of a flush fitting with the retaining screws, then you could cut out the old stand-up filler neck and drop the flush fit in it's place, but unless you can find a way to recess the screw area it's still going to be proud of the tank surface.

Having seen a picture of your tank I'm not sure. The difficulty would be filling the flap area and creating a fuel-tight seal, really depends how good your welding/brazing is. A Monza style cap is going to cost you 15-20 quid, you could probably get another tank with a flush filler for that kind of money.

I'm with Paulie the amount of work to make the filler fit would be better
