    R8 oil cap

    Mine sits at an angle and I want it to be straight. I'm sure I read somewhere that it can be taken apart to be made to sit straight. I just can't find the thread through search engine anymore and I've been searching for 30minutes.

    Can anyone help me out.

    Just Google R8 cap mod or something like that.

    I think you just separate the top from the bottom, cut some notches out and re-clip back together.
