  1. Remove or open the locking gas cap cover to reveal the key-insertion slot.
  2. Mark a spot just to the right of the key-insertion slot on the bare metal of the locking gas cap.
  3. Drill into the gas cap at an angle, through the tumbler body (where the key fits on the inside) and out the bottom of the cap inside the tank.

Likewise, how much does it cost to fill up a motorcycle tank? Some can be as little as a two-gallon tank while others can be as big as eight gallons. Let's say your bike holds five gallons. You'll spend approximately $20 for each fill-up. Over the course of a year, your total comes out to just over $1,000.

Moreover, why do Harleys have two gas caps?

So, you had two tanks, one for oil and one for gas. It evolved to two gas tanks when contained oil systems became the norm (maybe because two small gas tanks were easier to manufacture than one big one?). Now, it's purely a styling and heritage exercise.

How do you refuel a bike?

The correct way to fuel your bike, is to shove the nozzle down into the tank, not leave the tip near the top. That way, the nozzle will shut off before the tank is full and near the fuel cap opening. You then pull the nozzle back to the edge of the opening and slowly fill the tank by watching and listening.
