Not sure how but I lost my front valve stem cap. Must have not been tightened down too securely. Have you guys ditched the stock ones for something aftermarket? I picked up some black plastic ones for now but may upgrade later.

Indian motorcycle parts only shows caps combined with the valve stem, part number 1521312 (Scout, FTR1200).
$8.29 each.

In fact I’m not 100% positive the caps are actually included.

I lost my front wheel cap too. Probably after topping up tire pressures. I replaced both caps with a pair of Indian branded carbon fiber ones.

This had me thinking of the idea of tethering cap to the valve stem.
Apparently nothing new.

At the same time I was finding that, I came across some talk about metal caps seizing/corroding onto stems. So thought I would put that warning out here.
