I talked to the deisgner and builder of the Stateline Slammer, Eric Dunshee. He said the only modification to the tank was shaving the lower seam. Of course they also have a dash that he removed... I didn't ask him about the gas cap but i'll shoot him an email and see if he can shed some light on how/if it was modded and what type of cap it is.

Those look good but whyd does it come with JB Weld...? I con only assume that means that some cutting is involced. I wouldn't want to JB Weld my tank. JB is great stuff and ive used it on alot of crap but I think I'd rather weld my gas tank. Do you know what kind of trimming/modding is required since you used these?

the way they are installed is, you lay a bead of jb weld around the lip of the hole, then stick the sleeve that the cap screws into in the hole, i used the jb weld putty and it worked great, there was no cutting or modding of the tank whatsoever............like i said, we did it to our 750's, a ton of us did it and never had a lick of trouble...........YMMV...................t

Hey folks... reviving this thread

Did a search on the tank and cap as I've got some ideas, (I am considering just a weld in bung that would fit multiple caps, be it push in/out, spinners etc) but did anyone ever come up with some aftermarket solution?

Will welding really cause that much of an issue? I get that shrinkage could occur but what about brazzing? (I know next to nothing about that method)

You could use bondo for the recessed portion but thats the cheap way of building it up. Anyone done some customizing on that portion?

Has anyone actually priced out what itd cost to do this? I read that itd be pricey but no specifics.

Adios amigos, weather is here, wish you were beautiful!!

Are the stock caps vented or non vented? Can't just weld anything in it.

Or find a junk harley tank and cut a few inches all the way around the gas cap hole. Cut out the stock fury one and swap in the harley hole. Then twist in this cap
