Hey guys. Was thinking about swapping out gas caps and was wondering if the 2006 and up gas caps are interchangeable with my 2004? Bolt pattern looks the same but I'm sure they are different for some reason.

'Victory' gas caps are expensive. But they're also not a unique style or size to Victory. Many have posted about replacing the Victory gas cap with one that also fits a Suzuki/Yamaha/Kawasaki etc. So look around, you don't 'have ' to have a "Victory' gas cap.

This is crazy if it is true. In a been spending countless hours trying to find something I like and then you drop this in our laps. Lol. Sure looks alike to me. But would it work for 2006 and up or 2005 and down or both?
$11 freaking dollars !!!!!!! Just showed you how over charged the accessories are.

The one you posted is with a KEY, but you want a POP-UP that is much easier .... No key needed ... Only look at the ones that have the hole-to-hole measurements ...

Sure some minor mortification or rubber O-ring is needed, but the idea is there .....

3 hail marries for Mark

Yea I just put the pic up to show how it looks the same as our factory ones. There are so many keyless ones for the Yamahas I'm giddy with excitement.
And looking for ones with hole to hole measurment shouldn't matter. If one fits for a certin model then they all should fit

I saw this on the Victory Facebook page. The only real question is vented cap or non-vented cap. Polaris didn't reinvent the gas cap, its measurements or its function. They just used the standard size used by just about everyone else. Drive belt specs, yea, that's unique to a stock Victory.

It's not a whole lot different than mirrors. A 10mm right hand thread is a 10mm right hand thread with all manufacturers. Handlebars, bearings, brake pads, relays etc etc etc. Many items on our bikes are 'standard' parts wrapped, partnered or positioned in a unique setting.

I hear ya but even different year victory items don't work on other year victorys. If there was a specific brand and model of bike that was already known to work on our bikes that would be helpful. I don't have Facebook so I can't search there.
And I checked out bikers for Christ. Looks like a great organization.

You don't need a Facebook account to search their site or follow a link onto Facebook. I'm about as anti Facebook as a person can be which is why I have a very narrow view of posts I see. I've never opened let alone accepted a friend request. That little tidbit can keep your Facebook account looking clean and you only see what you want to see. There are a few Victory pages on Facebook with some excellent information on things like fitting a Yamaha gas cap or Victory things for sale or being searched for.

I think the Victory / Yamaha gas cap thing was a few weeks ago on the Victory Motorcycle Owners Group page on Facebook. Far too many posts for me to go back and try to find it or a link for you. But if memory serves it was a few posts in response to a post by Gino Pilolla and one of his beautiful pop up gas caps. Someone then posted a comment about how it's a standard sized item that fits multiple manufacturers bikes and can therefore be had from many, many sources.
