    Oil tank cap is broken-1994 WaveRaider

    The oil cap is broken on my '94 Raider. An OEM oil cap is $16.49. Certainly wouldn't financially break me but come on! I'm a "all about value" guy and it just doesn't sit well with me to have to pay that much for a plastic cap.

    I'm just taking a shot in the dark. Does anyone know of any other cap that would work?

    the oil fill cap from a 74 pinto is an exact match, but that one is $29

    Seriously, $16.49 is a GIFT considering how old the ski is and what those caps typically sell for. I got some used ones for $20 + shipping, that makes it $29

    if it's all about value, why not just throw some jb weld on it and call it good.

    If we are bucking over $16 for a toy, duct tape is only $4

    My wife actually asked me if some plastic model cement (which we have) would work. I've also got JB Weld. I told her that I'd clean the plastic cap up and see if some glue would work.

    I was thinking that there is some plastic cap out there with the same threads that would fit. That's why I asked.
