If you read both gas cap types the one for the 47cc bikes will fit the cat eyes. I bought one and it looks sharp. I did have to add a couple layers of gasket paper in between the cap & the black plastic thing for it to line up right when screwed on, but perfect fit.

btw, was the logo perfectly aligned/centered when screwed on all the way? or was it crooked?

Mine was off (i.e. sitting on it looking down an having the logo straight to read it like that). When you install it though you have to take the guts out your old cap and put them inside it. With that being said I just put some gasket paper at first which I now used a piece of thin plastic I came across. I put it between the black thing and the cap and its straight and tight when screwed on. Looks sharp IMO.

It was off like a quarter turn. I used 2 layers of gasket paper at first and it was perfect. Then I stepped to a pretty thin piece of plastic and got the same effect.

so what you mean is you added that gasket paper so that when it screws in all the way, it's perfectly aligned? or was the gasket spacer used to help keep the fit snug?

I'm ordering the fork end caps & grips from daves. I really hope they match up with the cap. It'll look sweet.
