This is a common thing with many Harley's. As a certified Harley Tech I have seen this and heard many complaints over the OEM gas caps.

Anybody try this cap on your 18+ softail? https://www.harley-davidson.com/stor...04-61100129--1 If so does it also rattle like the stock cap?
I would gladly pay the $50.00 to solve the rattling cap. I have had two OEM caps replaced under warranty for rattling.

Haven't tried that one, but I got the Willie G skull gas cap probably 15,000 miles ago, and it has never rattled.

Which flush mount cap did you get? All the flush mount caps I am finding don't fit a 18 lowrider.

Talk to your parts guy. I dont have the part number unfortunately but I have an 18 breakout and the gas cap isnt specific to it. I think its for a fat bob or a dyna. Either way there are a few universal parts between all 3 bikes.

Gee I wonder if this cap is just a black version of the stock cap. Or is it constructed differently than the stock chrome cap that rattles?

That cap is exactly the same as the chrome version, they just made it black.
