Replacement Gas Cap

I have been looking for a replacement gas cap for a 2002 GSX-R750. Does any one have any ideas where I can find this. The spring on the little flip up piece has brok and I would like to replace the whole base. I am looking for stock or even something aftermarket. If any one has any suggestions give me the heads up, thanks.
Chris H

P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I need to get some sleep.

Ebay, preferably one that comes with a key so you can unlock it That's probably the cheapest way.

sometimes you only have to pay a little, mostly it's alot, once in a while it's all you have.

Dealer doesnt sell parts for the gas cap, it's sold only as a whole piece. Ronayers has it for $107.64

good for trying to order new keys perhaps. frame vin(on the steering head) is the one that counts.

I want to replace the whole piece...I let my cousin use my bike for the week while I was on vacation and I get it back with a broken gas cap...I figured if anything did happen to the bike is was going to be covered by him, so the whole piece is to be replaced. Thanks for the feedback guys...although i am having a little trouble finding the part on RonAyers.....could the link be posted as to wear you saw this. Thanks,

Chris

you can't link to their site because they make you accept the "Terms and Conditions of Use"
if you click on fiche, go to suzuki, gsx-r 750, pick the year, then go to fuel tank it will show a diagram and part numbers should be part 44200-33890 or 44201-33820 I don't know what the deference is, click on it and it gives the price. I might be that one is for california bikes and has some sort of added emissions crap.

Just get a replacement spring for a few bucks rather than replace the whole cap. Why spend 100 to 120 bucks when you can change a spring for about $ .50? Who needs the dealer?

Go to the Hardware store Chris. If they don't have one there are companys that make springs like this one >

Come people it's a gas cap flap spring.... it's not brain surgery.
