    Hey guys. I have a 2013 350exc-f that has the difficult at times to remove 1/4 turn gas cap. KTM realized the error of the push button design and redesigned it for 2014 for easier removal etc. anyone know if the 2014 cap will fit other years with that 1/4 turn newer style cap? (i.e. 2012-2013?)

    Yes. I put the cap from my 14 on the tank for my 08 (so I could pull my billet KTM cap off the 08 and put it on my 14). No problem.

    Good to know, Jeb ... thanks!
    Ummm, did the '14 cap actually work better? Or was it a 'meh? ..?

    The 1/4 turn gas cap is terrible. I put the SXS billet cap on my '14 and can hardly get the damn thing off. The stock one seems the same as my '09 was, but I didn't pay much attention to it when I swapped them out.

    I never tried the stock cap, except to get the bike home. Nothing against it, but the billet cap looks much better.

    When I got the billet cap for my 08 a year or so ago, it was very hard to remove. I worked the latches with a small file to get them more rounded off. Now it comes off much easier.

    I just got a '12 300XC and was really fighting with the cap. I took it apart to see if it could be made easier to open. What I found is the button on it is in the wrong place. You really have to push the hose down to get it to work reasonably well. It looks like that was the change KTM made to fix it too. They moved the button to the center and the vent nipple off to the side. They may have made some internal changes too since it's a horribly bad design to start with.

    But, pushing the hose down did make it work pretty well on my '12.
