Stock radiator cap is $25. 16PSI Stant #11233 is $9. Unless you're looking for a hi pressure cap you can find the Stant one in stock at just about any auto parts store.

Stock cap is rated 1.1 bar,
1.1 bar = 15.9541512 pounds per square inch

Not to be fussy Solo, 1 bar is 14.5 PSI so the 16 PSI cap is actually a great find for a little added boilover protection. Everyone can download the convert.exe file for free from several websites, this is the one that I used http://joshmadison.c...ftware/convert/ I just keep a shortcut on the desktop to convert almost anything, my wife even uses it to do cook book conversions. :thumbsup:

Not to be even more fussy but re-read my post. Then go to your converter and tell me what "1.1" bar is. The stock cap is 1.1 bar and 16 PSI is a damn close equivilant. :ride:

I'll forgive you this time. :bonk:

No worries. I just didn't want everyone running out to buy a $9 stock equivelant cap thinking it was better. It's not better, just a cheap solution. On that note, I rode in the hot AZ desert with my new $9 cheapy cap and it worked great. Burped when it needed to and recovered from the overflow when it cooled down.
