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.com/software/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.
