    Tank gas cap to a 1986 German version

    Hi from Norway

    I have now bought two new gas caps and none of them is correct for my model of tank.
    The lock is too narrow tank hole so the the hook in the locking mechanism does not hit the pin in front of the opening.
    Can someone please tell me what cap that I can buy?

    Thanks for any help. The tank is on the pichture below.

    I can't find a parts list for 86 but '87 is part no 2M02460200 https://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-sr500-1...4.html#results

    The same part is used on 1979 XS750 [3G9] and XS250 [3N6].

    The differences seems to be that this tank requires a cap that has a distance from fastening screw to top of locking hook of 80mm.
    Not 70mm as for normal i.e. 1978 gas cap's.

    There are three different caps for the SR that I'm aware of, two pivoting ones and a round cap...

    From recollection the older one was the longest.
