Default 1980 Yamaha Sr250OG Gas cap?

hey everyone.

Looking for a replacement cap for a 1980 Yamaha SR250OG. Any thoughts on what caps would work as a replacement for it, other than the original one?

Found an OEM replacement for around 50 bucks, but wouldn't mind getting an aftermarket for cheaper.

Thanks for any input.

Am I going to need to obtain a separate key for the new gas cap, or will my current key work with any cap I get for the bike?

Wouldn't that be convenient for gasoline-thieves..........

Unfortunately, it is doubtful the new cap will fit your key. It should come with its own - unless it's a non-locking cap you purchase.

If it's a double-sided key, and you know someone that has an actual key machine (rather than the "Idjit-proof" Axxess machines you see at Mal~Wart and the like) - you can have a new one made with the old pattern on one side, the new pattern on the other - Voila'! One key.

Just checking. Didn't know if it was like certain car keys that are interchangeable. But thanks for the tip about making the key from both of them.

That IS, of course assuming the warding (grooves running the length of the key) on both keys is identical. Honda in particular used to have a bad habit of making the warding mirror-image about halfway-through the production-run of a bike.
