I broke my petrolcap!!!!
« on: July 14, 2006, 10:08:15 am »
I had an early morning deadline this morning.. so leaft early this morning (5:30) Got to the Petrolstation to get some go-juice. The attendant  naturally was sleeping.. i hooted and nothing, so i thought if they dont want to serve me.. i will take my business elsewhere. (i opened my petroltank when i got there.) so i stripped my moer and got back on my bike.. and i saw something fall on the floor??? WTF... after i had a look i saw my petrol cap on the floor??? I knocked it  off with my knee when i  mounted the bike.



and



Now i will be going to Bee em and seeing what they will rip me for a new one..

In the wise words of forest gump... "stoopid is as stoopid does"

Will update after i visited bee-em.

I came to work with the cage... kak.... at the price of petrol i dont want it evaporating at work

and you never know when someone decides to flick his cigarette stompie into my tank.. Murphy is a bliksem you know.

Don’t worry Grootseun it has happened to me as well. Petrol attendant didn't close the cap and when I mounted I broke it of as well.

Unfortunately that was in Clarens, so had to duck tape it back on and at every petrol station it was a mess opening it and closing it again!

Good luck!
 :lol:

Yes well it wasn't that difficult to get from the, BMW Bavaria, but if I remember correctly they took about a week to get the part and unfortunately I can't remember the price. It wasn't that expensive (BMW wise)  :lol:

that would be a cast aluminium part, in other words near impossibble to weld  :cry: .
my dad had a bmw 3 seies back in 1986, the cubby hole latch kept breaking, and everytime they would rip him about R350 (alot back then), and the worst was that it was just a little part of the latch that broke but he had to replace the WHOLE thing everytime!
