Keyless gas cap

Is anyone using a flush, easy install, keyless gas cap for this bike?

No.

I tried one once. The look cool. They're great for racers to eliminate the key, and provide full access to the filler neck.

But when I'm at the gas station, It's easy to pull the key out of the ignition and unlock the cap. I prefer the cap to stay on the bike with the hinge, so I don't have to set it down anywhere and drop it or forget it.

That is all.

So which one did you try, if it was for the H2SX?

It looks like the Kawasaki uses the 5 hole mounts. I wonder if say the z1000 one would fit? Would have to pull mine off to see if they have a certain breather hole or something. Not a lot of offerings out there tho so might need to be an sx only version or order / return trial and error.

Gas cap for ZX10R is the same part number (also H2 & H2R) so pretty high chance that aftermarket item for ZX10R will fit.

You could find that information yourself if you use the Shared Parts list that one forum member took the trouble to compile for everyone's benefit. Or you could do it the hard way and check Kawasaki parts listing.

Yes, I was hoping to hear from someone/folks who had some 'hands on' time with one for this bike. Hands on is such a good source of practical 'use'.

I have the accossato gas cap on my h2sx. Always put them on my bikes rather than fiddling with the key, plus they look much nicer.
Super EZ install works great!

Are all the kawasaki caps the same? Don't see our bike listed. Thanks
