    Default I finally did it.

    I bought a billit gas door to put in my seat 2 years ago but could never bring myself to actually mount it in the seat. My wife doesn't ride with me that often so it wasn't a big deal. Yesterday I was looking for something and I came across that door and said to myself its time to put that door in. Still the hardest part was drilling that firdt hole in my seat. After that I had to finish. I painted the door brown to match my seat so I had to wait for that to finish drying. I got it in and it looks pretty good.I need to get some contact cement to glue down the upholstry.After I do I will take a picture and post it.

    Not sure if clear coat would help too?? To keep the paint on? That usually gets chipped up over time if not coated.

    I have a full can of Brown spray I will need to use some where. Since I will have to take the door off to paint it I will wait and do a touch up and maybe the clearcoat then. Thanks for the idea.

    Ultimate seats has a gas door option that uses an aftermarket fuel door. Many folks have bought the door and done the modification themselves. Here is the picture of what Pegasus1300 is doing.



    Corbin has a version that they modify the front "wing" of the seat:

    And open. access to the gas cap without lifting the seat.:

    Motorcycle design engineers do strange things to motorcycles, the least of which is lifting the seat to refuel. The GW folks in all their wisdom buried the air filter in the guts of the machine and never considered a correction, go figure.

    I can see what's going on ... guess my question would be does the door rub on your leg?

    No, actually I don't even know it is there until fill up time. It does not get hot or put any pressure on my leg, it is just real convenient.
