    Had a 2008 144sx and the cap leaked a lot. Replaced it with new one and that one leaked just as bad. Difficult to use too . . . those KTM gas caps are a poor design.

    The 14 cap is redesigned and works much better.. No more sticking and no leaking. Should be backwards compatible with all of the 1/4 turn caps. Cheap upgrade and well worth it IMO.

    07 was bad with a leak. it was the tank itself during moulding process the tank had dimples around the lip causing it to leak. discovered putting new cap on. Toke utility knife to cut down dimples and problem solved now seals up.
