I'd love to be able to just hop on my bike and go without worrying about the key. Anyone found a keyless gas cap yet?

I found these, but they are listed as "Coming Soon"... http://www.diavelpar...ingGasCaps.html

Cheers

They look good, but it's not my notion of keyless.

They are keyless because they are non-locking

There is an optional keyless system on the Multistrada that unlocks based on the proximity key. Mixed reactions to reliability though

Make sure you get a good seal when installing a keyless fuel cap. You don't want your garage reeking of gasoline fumes.

I'll post a pic as soon as I get home. It wasn't hard, just time consuming. Had to take the top of the tank off to fit it.

Hey, thanks for posting guys - the shift-tech cap evaded my searches. Looks pretty good, but I too would like a pic and a review of how technical the installation was....

Cheers!

Sorry I don't have any pictures handy. I'll try to get one tonight or tomorrow. It's a relatively easy install. You first have to remove the air intakes and the seat and then remove the the side panels and tank cover. You need to remove the fitting that surrounds the gas cap and the lower display. You will have to disconnect the lower display. At that point it's pretty easy to see how the gas cap fits. There are quite a few screws that have to be removed on all the bits, so don't go pulling things off until you've removed all the screws that hold it on (common sense but that stuff is expensive if you break it). Good Luck!

Ordered my carbon shift tech keyless gas cap and through in a O2 manipulator too. Must have been a rush on the caps after this post cause I am in a queue for a 7-14 day wait before they come back in stock.

Can hardly wait!

Not keyless, but for the carbon effect you could always do this...................

Check out part #598.2.088.2A

In the Diavel parts catalog, Says it's a "Hands Free 868 mhz kit"

Can't tell if the cap is the keyless one from the diagram but it is listed differently than just the gas cap.

$1000+ might be a bitter pill though. *ouch*

Thanks SD for pointing it out, but you're correct, $1000+ is too rich for me. Pity, but I'll have to stick with old fashioned way of using the key.
