Finding a replacement gas cap

I stripped my old gas cap removing it without the key (not included in the bike purchase, poor me) and am now looking for a universal gas cap that will actually fit this bike - Ebay has not been helpful at all. Can anyone be of assistance?

You can purchase a new OEM gas cap at Babbit's. It is Yamaha part number 47G-24650-00-00. The cost is $132.75 and the key comes with it. :)

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " You can probably get a different gas tank with cap and key. I don't know if a salvage yard would sell only the cap w/ key.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks! < < And it doesn’t cost anything!

Next time it stops, remove your gas cap and see if it starts without waiting 15 minutes.

If it does, your problem is probably the gas tank venting.

Air has to be allowed into the gas tank to replace the fuel leaving it, or it will "vapor lock"

Regulations no longer allow a vented gas cap to vent directly into the atmosphere, so look for a vent line, and make sure it is clear.

Some (like my bike) have a one-way inline valve that allows air into the tank, but doesn't allow fumes to escape.
These valve stick closed sometimes.

Hi after couple years sitting, just cleaned out the gas tank and cleaned out carburetors, stripped them down completely, they did not seem to bad. now starts right up with choke, but give it gas , stalls...


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

I need to raise the handle bar on diamondblack Odyssey DB78 mountain bike. It has a "cartridge system inside" stamped on the top post around the allen key. I loosened the alley key but...


Simply web search for "raise the handle bar" and you get lots of resources.

A major limitation is the steerer tube length. No matter how many times you cut a steerer tube it won't get longer.

Getting Riser Bars or simply flipping the stem over or getting one with a different rise and reach might give you the added height you need. If you LIKE the handlebars, the stem is the best and least-invasive option as most new ones come with front loaders (detachable front caps) that allow replacement without stripping components off one side of the handlebar. In minutes a Bicycle Shop could swap any number of them onto your bike for you to try.

If you had purchased the bike at a reputable Bicycle Shop they would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

I recently purchased a 1978 Honda Goldwing. It had some old gas in the tank so I removed the old gas and replaced the fuel filter. The bike was idling fair before now it's extremely high. Does this...


If the bike was idling OK when you ran it on the old gas, maybe the carbs were adjusted while the old gas was in the tank. The new gas could have cleaned the fuel system some and that's why your idle jumped. The fuel filter will definitely not cause your idle to go higher so no need to worry there.

My bike has a stripped screw on the right pedal. Also the hole that the screw fits in is now stripped. What replacement parts do I need to purchase and where can I purchase them?


Without specifics regarding the pedal and crankarm we can't really answer that. Take it to a reputable bike shop for their assessment.

Gas cap v star 650


best bet would be to get a new one also remembering how much the dealers charge for there products i would go aftermarket threw partsunlimited, cruiser, or Tucker rocky but the dealer still has to order it for you, all have great quality products at cheaper prices than O.E.M replacements unless your still under warranty.
