Gas Tank Cap

Could anybody point me to a quality aftermarket gas tank cap that has been used/tested?

Preferably that comes in the colour black please?

Thank you!!

I had one of these for a while but after a lot of use the threads got messed up and it was difficult to unscrew and I went back to the stock cap (after I painted it black).

I have one that looks exactly like that, but it was sold under a different name, and without the white logos. I don't remember the brand name, but I've been using it since '08 with no issues.

How well did yours seal when the tank is removed and upside down? No Leaks?

I haven't had the tank or the bike upside down, but the housing that the cap screws into has a vent hole so I'm sure a little bit of gas would start draining out.

That one also looks exactly like mine, but I don't remember it being sold by Black Path. There are also no-name ones on ebay and Amazon that look the same.
