Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a new gas filler cap replacement for my CX500TC. The original one (17620-MC7-003) is hard to find.

Do you guys know if caps of other bikes from that area (GL650 for example) fit? If so, which bikes are compatible?

Thanks!

The cover of the gas cap's keyhole is broken off on mine. The cap keyhole cover on my 500 turbo had a red, white and blue Honda wing like on the key. Does anyone know if the 650 T was the same?

The gas caps from the 500 and 650 can be used on both bikes. If I am correct the only difference is the key. Do you still have the cover? I have repaired it a few years ago by dismantling the gas cap using a home made tool ( designed by Joe Hovel) to get the lid off. When the lid is removed you have acces to the broken parts. Replacing the lid is using a soft hamer and turn it around in your hand to bend the egde back in place. It is not an easy job but with a lot of patience it can be done.
