billet oil cap

Looking for a silver billet oil cap. I am unsure of the Pro Bolt fitment. I have seen it on many sites but no specific detail to fit a 919. Does anyone know what part number at Dennis Kirk or other popular models the cap would fit?

I got one for a CRF450R. They have the same part numbers from Honda. I got it because it requires an allen head to remove it to keep people from putting cigarette butts or worse in my crank.

I would not want any butts in my crank either!
I would like a quality oil plug also.

This is the same guy that sells the SSR gas caps. Maybe he can do us a group buy to make up for the gas cap deal (that went south).

I know a guy that came out to his bike after work one time and the oil filler cap on his bike was gone. To make matters worse, there were particles of gravel/dirt around the hole. He figured the a$$hole giving him $hit at work was somehow responsible. He called me to take the bike home in the back of my truck. Low and behold, there was a bunch of dirt inside the clutch housing. Never fired it up thank goodness. Of course, a direct questioning of the suspect produced an "I don't know what you're talking about" answer. Sweet thing is, my friend ended up kicking that guy's ass later over that compounded by another situation. He got fired for it but hated the job by then anyway!

I'm game for a good fitting oil filler cap that requires a wrench to remove!

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

Honestly tho - I'd rather it be a hex head plug.

Anybody know of one?

Thats mine. He does not have any listed right now but am sure he could get you one---I got mine in black with no engraving so it looks clean & subtle as to not draw attention to it.

Froget the wrench, safety wire is the "hot set-up"

I like the looks of the hex head plug, but Putnam requires that the oil filler cap be safty wired. There're not many choices of where to run the wire to on the 919. I ended up drilling the head of the clutch cover bolt behind the lifter lever. That thing was harder than hen's teeth. But after it was done, I had a neat looking job.

I've never thought of the security aspect of it, but safty wire also serves as a seal. You'd easily be able to tell if your plug had been tampered with by looking at the safty wire. Razorbike's bud was lucky he had a locking gas cap or "Scumbag" would have dumped something in the tank.
