The top glues to the existing cap.

Riding: 2011 Cross Roads & 2016 Springfield
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Thanks for the tip. Electric tape causes it to fit snug. Really dresses things up. $'s well spent!

You could also use open cell foam with a sticky back say 1/8 inch in thickness four little pieces two at top and two at bottom approximately 180 apart.

I'll be purchasing one of the black covers soon and I'll see how good it works because I think I have some of that open cell foam lying around just that size.

This isn't a Zookie dirter for the kid, or a eastern bloc knock off of a western euro boxer. It's a first world luxury motorcycle. If Victory is compelled to incorporate a urine cup into the product, at least hide the damn thing. I wouldn't have batted an eye at another 100 bucks or 500 for that matter to just bury some of that stuff. Some other American motorcycle manufacturers think that their brake reservoirs are ugly enough to merit a cover standard equipment, and those reservoirs are painted metal... and they still cover them.
I mean it's not like we're not going to spend money on these things. Do they think we need additional incentive? I can just hear some bright boy in a marketing huddle "hell, why don't we just put 30 dollar Pep Boys China tires on it. The customer can buy decent rubber after the sale."
At the very least I wish they would consider curb appeal from closer than 10 feet away. I know my buds will be wowed by the power and the goodies but they will run me like a Kentucky mule over things like that Walmart fluid res.
I guess the good news is that Polaris has created a condition for me to improve that will result in more than just modifying for mod sake. There will be a payoff that is more than just swapping out perfectly good parts for other perfectly good parts. I will see real improvement and so will anyone with a discerning eye, and I haven't even started about that Radio Shack wet dream hanging off of the handlebars.
Actually, the brake res. is of high quality, not being hidden out of site or chrome plated steel does not make it a pos. Hiding it out of site must make it a joy to service. If it had a tendency to fail, that would make it a pos, JMHO.
